A lot of people ask, what does the Treasurer do?
The Treasurer is responsible for running a large office with 800 employees and overseeing multiple and diverse departments within the Massachusetts state government. These departments maintain the state’s daily cash flows, manage state debt, regulate alcoholic beverages, provide funds to improve water quality, protect and return unclaimed property to Massachusetts citizens, promote financial education, provide veterans benefits, and help Massachusetts employees save for retirement.
The Treasurer is also responsible for overseeing the Massachusetts State Lottery, chairing the Massachusetts School Building Authority, and managing the Pension Reserves Investment Trust Fund, which represents the $55 billion pension fund for state employees.
