20YRS. 1988-2007, 20YRS 1989-2008 & 1988-2011 24 YEARS OF SANTA BARBARA COUNTY’S ECONOMIC ASSUMPTIONS v. ACTUAL (SBCERS) PENSION FUND PERFORMANCE 1988-2007

Take a look at the Pension Growth graph below and how it represents the 8.16% Actuarial Rate nice and smooth. The reason I like the graph so much is because it is simple. It is just a smooth growth that does not care about assumption or Inflation factors. It all actuality that 8.16% is the all-inclusive number, so why are the pension audits and the explanations that people give about them always trying to lose us with additional numbers and factors?

“SBCERS History of Economic Assumptions” VS. Actual Pension Fund Performance; covering 20 years 1988 through 2007.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Look at the 20 Net Return on Assets picture above to the right that shows an annual 10.10% return on investments. If that data was added to the graph on the left the line representing 10.10%  it would show that 600 million dollars more was earned for the pension than the 8.16%. Then if you add some more money because of the unfunded future pension obligations (UAAL) like I did the pension should have earned a billion dollars more than the 8.16% would have. I have made my own work sheet showing the differences between Santa Barbara County’s Pension Assumptions and the SBCERS Pensions Actual Performances.


I have two other work sheets showing assumptions v. actual earned return average. 1989-2008 9.6% represents the 20 YEAR NET RETURN ON ASSETS and 1988-2011 8.5% represents 24 YEARS of NET RETURN ON ASSETS both sheets can be found further down this posting.

2- Using Actual Performance Factor; $270,540,000 X 10.10% (E.) X 20 years = $1.94 billion dollars,

3-Same as example 2 plus a monthly deposit; Again a starting value of $270,540,000 but adding a monthly (H) deposit of 580,000 X 10.10% (E) X 20 years = $2.37 billion dollars.

America how are our pensions earning more than they wanted (8.16%), contributing more than the normal rate( 4.02%) of County’s yearly payroll for the entire 20 year period 1988-2007 and claim to have a Billion dollar unfunded deficit? I have just done the math that shows a Billion dollar surplus would have been earned, WAKE UP AMERICA!


S.B.C.C.C. The place where COMMON SENSE never goes out of style!

About magicinsantabarbara

Our Santa Barbara Criminal and Civil Superior Courts often abuse’s us with illegal and unjust judgments and convictions. So I investigate, law enforcement, judge’s, elected officials and our California Public Pensions trying to expose the corruption we are being forced to accept. We must always respect and support those who practice the law in an even and ethical manner and demand it from those who do not. Here you can find data for SBCERS, VECRA, LACERA .pensions as well as others.
