Last November, we made a promise to Kentuckians to change the course of the Commonwealth, and with the collaboration of the Kentucky House, Governor Bevin, and the Kentucky Senate, that promise is fulfilled for current retirees and employees, and generations to come with the release of a plan to fix public pensions and ensure benefit obligations in the future.

  • Weighing in on sleep

    How do you know when your body has had enough rest?  According to the sleep guidelines from the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) the average adult, from the ages of 24–64, should get about 7–9 hours of sleep every night. 

    Although there is no perfect amount of sleep for everyone, it would be wise to pay attention to how much sleep you get and how you feel.  If after only 7 hours of sleep you feel refreshed, it may be enough.  If after 7 hours you feel groggy or your body is sluggish, you may need more than just 7 hours.
