Wagner Declines Pension, Health Plan and Insurance Plan
Officially signs documents declining benefits; fulfills campaign pledge

One of Senator Scott Wagner’s first actions was to officially decline the pension, health and insurance plans offered to legislators.

In keeping with his pledge, Senator Wagner declined those benefits and is releasing the signed documents for constituents to review.

"In keeping with my campaign promise to decline the offered benefits – I also want to be transparent which is why we are releasing the documents to the constituents of the 28th Senate District," Wagner explained.

"Declining these benefits that have enticed many politicians to stay in office for far too long is one step towards showing the constituents that I am committed to political reform and restoring the meaning of public service," Wagner said.
