NJ Judges of Compensation Seek Return to State Pension System

The legislation now pending before the NJ Assembly would permit reinstatement of NJ Judges of Workers Compensation into the state pension system (A1032 3R). A similar bill has already passed the NJ Senate (S758 3R) on February 19, 2021 (29-5-5).

Politico reported, “The bill to readmit workers compensation judges to the pension system, NJ S758 (20R), which passed the Senate, 29-5, in February and awaits action in the full Assembly, is somewhat less controversial. According to OLS, the roughly $4.5 million annual cost would fall on the Second Injury Fund, which would be funded by increased assessments on workers’ comp insurance.


“State may allow some workers back into pension system, a decade after they were removed,’ POLITICO, 06/15/2021.
