Ex-L.A. Mayor To Debate Police Union on 401(k) Plan

November 15, 2012  | 

Multimillionaire businessman and former Los Angeles mayor Richard Riordan agreed Wednesday to three debates with the police union on his pension revamp initiative that would create a 401(k)-style retirement plan for newly hired officers.

Riordan is gathering signatures for an initiative he hopes to place on the May 21, 2013 ballot. Voters will also be electing a new mayor to replace termed-out Anthony Villaraigosa.

The measure would create a 401(k)-style retirement plan for newly hired city workers including Los Angeles Police Department officers instead of the current guaranteed pensions, reports the Los Angeles Times.

The Los Angeles Police Protective League, in a blog post, called Riordan's plan reckless and said it would be "more costly than the current pension systems."

If you think that IOD pensions are out of control now wait until the new pension plan goes into effect. Why settle for a 401 type retirement when you can get a guaranteed work related retirement without working the required amount of years.
