- Associated Press - Monday, February 24, 2014

In a table that accompanied a Feb. 16 story about the composition of public pension boards, The Associated Press reported erroneously the number of the 12 current members of the CalPERS board who also are beneficiaries of the pension system. The number is 10, not 9. Board member Richard Costigan also is a pension beneficiary.

A corrected version of the table is below:
