Our sincere sympathy to the family of Jerry Whittington, who recently passed away. - - - - -
If you have a friend that is not a member of PCRTA, please encourage them to join. All of us need to be working to keep our pension and health insurance intact. One way to do that is by joining PCRTA and IRTA. - - - - - Are you already a member of the IRTA? No? You might want to consider joining at the state level because it's the only organization that works solely to protect the pension rights of TRS Annuitants. And you might want to consider joining our local unit, too.
When you come to the unit meetings you will get to spend time with the retirees from your school who belong. You'll also get to hang out with retirees from rival school districts as well and discover that the only disagreements in retirement are with those, such as political leaders who want to take away our promised benefits. Just what scares those politicians? Large numbers of opponents, such as IRTA members. So, join with us. Our unit's dues are very reasonable ($10) and so are the IRTA dues that TRS, will deduct at only $2.50 a month. Just go to the IRTA website.
Years old: Amount of Dues 55-65 $150 66-75 $100 76-85 $50 86-90 $10 90+ Free
