As state employees, you are promised a pension when you are hired. KOSE is extremely active both at the state level and at the national level through AFT and AFSCME (our national affiliates) in protecting and strengthening our pensions. A pension is a deferred wage, and a promise for the future. Depending on what your job is, you have different pension benefits.
