Second, a clear picture needs to be drawn of what effects in- flation and rising ,living costs would have on the worth of the retirement benefits teachers re- ceive. The study is still incomplete, but enough information has been compiled and analyzed to deter- mine some trends. To compare the benefits in Wy- oming to those in other states, information has been gathered from 33 other states with 16 not yet reporting. On the basis of the informa- tion compiled, Wyoming ranks almost at the bottom, 31st out of 33. Information from the other 16 states may push Wyoming up or down the ranking scale. How- ever, even if all the states not reporting have lower benefits, they cannot statistically push Wyoming out of the bottom 50 percent in the nation. This is not only a financial hardship on retired Wyoming teachers. Low retirement bene- fits are bound to keep good teachers out of the state and send them into areas with more favor- able systems. From the standpoint of the effects of inflation on retire- ment benefits it is apparent that rising living costs lower the buy- ing power of the dolar. How- ever Wyoming, unlike some other states, has no provision to off- set this factor. Nevada, Kentucky Wisconsin and Hawaii are among the states that increase benefits at least 1 percent each year to help keep retirement incomes in line with the cost of living.
