On July 1, 2019 Public Act 19-102 (PA-102) transferred the responsibility for maintaining the searchable online electronic database concerning state expenditures from the Office of Fiscal Analysis (OFA) to the Office of the State Comptroller (OSC). The Open Connecticut database can be viewed here.
The data on this website will no longer be updated. Archived information will continue to be made available on this website until the transition to OSC is complete.
The Pension Payments are the 1099 earnings reported by the Office of the State Comptroller for the selected calendar year. The data provided represents payments to retirees of the State Employee Retirement System (SERS, the primary plan for state employees), as well as the Judges, Family Support Magistrates and Compensation Commissioners Retirement System (JRS), the Probate Judges & Employees Retirement System (PJERS), the State's Attorney Retirement System, and the Public Defender Retirement System.
In 2018, payments totaling over $1.9 billion were made. These pension payments were made directly to retirees or to their beneficiaries. They represent the pensions of 48,964 retired employees. Additionally, the State administers the Alternate Retirement Program (ARP), a defined contribution program for some higher education employees.
