    I pay 41% of my health premiums. Is 20% high?

    For many state/local public employees anything above ZERO is abnormal. Federal workers now pay 25% of the premium costs. ;-)

    It's about time, next is to make 401(k) type contributions to their pensions too.

    I pay 0%.

    And my pension fund is in the black.

    I'm pretty lucky.

    You are lucky. But, the depression ain't over yet.

    Do you have a defined benefit pension plan or a defined contribution pension plan?
