Treasurer Folwell To Host August "Ask Me Anything" Session

 ​Pension Fund Valuations Highest Ever During 2nd Quarter

(RALEIGH) -- On Tuesday, August 8, 2017, North Carolina State Treasurer Dale R. Folwell, CPA, will hold an “Ask Me Anything” session for members of the media. These monthly calls are an opportunity for reporters across the state to ask anything about the department’s initiatives including the Retirement Systems Division, State Health Plan, State and Local Government Finance Division, or the Unclaimed Property Fund. 
Since the last call, so much has happened at the Department of State Treasurer. Bonds have been renegotiated saving more than $100 million in debt service costs; the State Health Plan has renegotiated its Medicare Advantage premiums actually reducing premiums for 2018; and the pension plan has returned second quarter and fiscal year earnings.
