countrywideThe Massachusetts state employees' pension fund will receive more than $11 million as part of a settlement with Countrywide Securities Corp., state Attorney General Martha Coakley said Monday.

The settlement was announced as part of Coakley's industry-wide review of residential mortgage securitization practices in Massachusetts.

The total settlement with Countrywide is $17.3 million. It includes a $6 million payment to the state.

The pension fund can also expect to receive an additional $7 million early in 2014 as a result of a $34 million settlement with JPMorgan announced by Coakley's office last month.

The settlements with Countrywide and JPMorgan are the latest in a series of six similar settlements with total payments of more than $300 million going back to 2009, according to Coakley.

They include settlements with Goldman Sachs ($60 million), Morgan Stanley ($102 million), Royal Bank of Scotland ($52 million), and Barclays Bank ($36 million).
