I retired Dec. 31 2012. I just received a ballot. Am I eligible to vote?
If you received a ballot there is no way that the independent firm is going to know whether you are eligible or not. Make sure to vote "yes" and send it in.
Who knows but do us all a favor and vote no and return it.
if you are a retiree, how do you feel about the TA?
Why would he want to vote yes and pay a much higher monthly insurance premium for a retiree??
I think a lot of employees will have to put off their retirement plans because of the increase in healthcare costs.
I am 62, halfway to 63. If this passes or not, it will have little effect on me. For future retirees it will have a detrimental effect. I believe that this is just the beginning when it comes to the amount that employees will have to pay after they retire. Also 4 years is way to long for an employee to have to wait to reach full pay.
Get ready to be attacked with:
"You're retired. You haven't read the contract. You don't know what it contains so why say damaging things about the TA when you haven't read it???????????"
Then you'll be asked via personal message to vote yes and send it in
No problem...Over the years I have read the contract numerous times. I have read the changes a couple of times, and I attended a union meeting a couple of weeks ago where we went over the contract and the supplement.
they sent you one so vote NO for the future retirees
If you don't want your healthcare to rise vote NO, send it in and hope they count it.
If this is true then why are our names on the outside of the yellow envelope? The instructions say it's to check for eligibility.
Do you really think they are going to cross each of our names off of their list as they receive and process our ballots?
Yes I do.
More reason to make sure you are putting money away in your 401k and not relying on your pension solely.
The more money you stocked away, the less "detrimental" an increase in retiree costs will hurt you.
I'm up to 10% now and can't wait to ratchet it up another 2% when i get that 70 cent raise on August 1st.
Separate names with a comma.
