A new early retirement estimate

The latest estimate on the number of state executive branch employees who are opting to retire early is 2177.  Those workers have until June 24 to change their minds, but that 2177 figure is far, far above the estimate lawmakers discussed when they passed an early retirement incentive package earlier this year.  (June 24, 2010 is the date by which those workers are to retire.) 

On April 16, 2010 — a day after the paperwork was due from those who wanted to accept the early retirement package — officials estimated 2007 workers were taking the “early out” option.
