Public Pension Compensation Survey

NCPERS 2022 Public Pension Compensation Survey features in-depth data from more than 150 public pension funds representing more than 9 million active and retired individuals and almost 12,000 staff positions. The survey, available exclusively to NCPERS members, is intended to help funds benchmark their compensation and benefits packages against their peers.

Order your copy today to receive a printed report with analysis of survey data, as well as access to an online interactive dashboard. Funds are able to filter data in a number of ways to help optimize the mix of funds to which they would like to compare themselves.  Filters include elements such as the type of participants served, size of fund by participant, number of systems administered, number of fund staff, number of fund investment staff, and how assets are managed. In addition, each position can also be filtered by assets, tenure, full- time/part- time, and whether the position has multiple roles.

The survey and dashboard feature information on:

  • Benefits provided to staff, including remote work offerings

  • Union participation for senior executives

  • Average salary and bonus data

  • Detailed compensation data for executive staff, broken down by fund assets and employee tenure
