One piece of reassuring economic news for North Carolina state workers: The pension kitty is fully funded and continues to outperform other government pension funds, despite a bleak economic year.

The fund covers pension benefits for 820,000 state and local government employees.

Insurance Commissioner Jim Long said the cuts should save North Carolina employers about $65.5 million.
