State Pensions

 

Caesar Rodney requested the State Pension Data as part of our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) effort and received this response from the State Office of Management and Budget.  

 

"The release of pensioner information is addressed in Delaware Code.  Specifically, 29 Del. C §8308 (d) states as follows: 
'(d) All records maintained by the Board or the Office of Pensions and Investments relating to the pensions or pension eligibility of persons receiving pensions from the State or other post-employment benefits and who are not presently employed by or serving as officers of the State or its political subdivisions shall be confidential.'

 

Accordingly, your request for state pensioner information as contained in your December 16, 2011 request cannot be fulfilled."


Many other states now release State Pension information for public use.

Caesar Rodney would have to go to court to secure the release of the Pension data even though the release of that data is forgone because it is both state employees' and taxpayers' money.  

If you would like to see this data released without court action please
contact your legislator.
