The Department of the Auditor General is charged with administering the state’s General Municipal Pension System State Aid Program that helps local governments defray the cost of employee, police and firefighter pension plans maintained by municipalities, regional police forces and councils of government.
In addition, funds are allocated through the department and local municipalities to nearly 2,000 volunteer firefighter relief associations to enable the purchase of training, equipment and insurance, and pay for death benefits for volunteer firefighters. Revenue for the state aid comes from a two percent tax on premiums paid for casualty and fire insurance sold in Pennsylvania by out-of-state insurance companies.
