Frequently Asked Questions - National Girl Scout Council Retirement Plan (NGSCRP)
What is the National Girl Scout Council Retirement Plan (NGSCRP)?
Why am I hearing about a pension issue facing local Girl Scout councils?
Can the burden on Girl Scout councils be lessened without hurting beneficiaries?
Would this legislative fix cost the government money?
I've seen press reports stating that this pension issue is caused by incentives given for early retirement during council realignment. Is this correct?
I've seen press reports stating that this pension issue was caused by 1,850 plan participants without a contribution history ("windfall participants") being added to the plan when the councils merged. Can you explain this decision and clarify the actual number of "windfall participants" in the plan and their fiscal impact on all councils?
Are camps being sold to pay for the pension expense?
