Most eligible employees contribute to the Louisiana defined benefit plan, but that does not guarantee a comfortable retirement. You will not be eligible for Social Security. Federal income taxes will be deducted from your retirement check. Plus, inflation and rising prices for health care, gasoline, food, and other household items could make it difficult to pay all your bills.
