Each year, Kathy Foster and team analyze the funds in their organization’s trust to figure out how long the money will last. More than 20,000 people rely on those funds when they retire – for income and health coverage – one of the biggest costs in retirement.

 

Foster is Assistant CEO of the Alameda County Employees’ Retirement Association (ACERA) – steward of the retirement benefits fund for the nation’s seventh largest county.

In February 2012, ACERA was one of California’s first counties to use a private Medicare exchange. A year later, ACERA is sharing how it made the decision, what the move entailed and taking a 20/20 look back to measure projections.
