Oregon PERS has published a rather thorough discussion and FAQ regarding the current economic situation and its effects on PERS members in all the different tiers. It is a valuable exercise in reading, although it parallels the experience one has when opening a 401K statement, a 403-B statement, or IRA statement. You can find the discussion here. You probably shouldn't eat or drink anything before reading it.
