How do you get a retired Missouri state government worker’s attention? Bring up potential changes to the agencies that manage his pension. Springfield Senator Eric Burlison said that he’d like to see LAGERS and M-PERS become one agency.
“There is a tremendous opportunity to merge those two funds together and find some efficiencies there, some economies of scale,” Burlison said.
LAGERS oversees many state employee retirement funds, while M-PERS handles pensions for the Missouri Department of Transportation and the Highway Patrol.
