Nope never received anything like that. Maybe you got it because you've been seeking info from your plan and they sold a mailing list.

m2c,
I got one of those several months ago and on the one hand Wiley might be right except a number of folks in our area who've had no involvement also got one. Some suggest it was via APWA and that could well be the case. That's where I'd look if I were you.

Oh, I did visit the website and it's got some useful stuff but I have one problem with it. Under the "Who We Is" part, there literally nothing about the people behind this effort. When organizations like this aren't totally transparent my ears does up and have a major "?" concerning them.

They maybe outstanding but the MO just concerns me.

Thanks for the feedback guys. In regards to the mailing list, I thought it was because of my purchase at www.unionist.com or maybe it is the APWA. I have to agree wkmac because I can't figure out who they are either.

This was "privately" registered so finding information through the domain registration is more difficult. Unfortunately, Googling "Telos Group" finds a variety of companies, most of them management or consulting firms. Perhaps someone else can spend more time figuring this out?

I have been in contact with these folks via email over the past few days. From what I gather, it appears to be an organization of volunteers with the purpose of educating participants about one's pension. They also have plans for starting a NYP message board. In regards to the mailing list, it apparently was obtained from a list broker.
