RPEC Members Efforts Paid Off!

Your Efforts Paid Off!

Your efforts to educate the state legislature on the need to provide a Plan 1 COLA and restore the PEBB Medicare benefit has borne fruit. The House budget proposal, PSHB 1067, which was released today includes the restoration of the PEBB Medicare Benefit. The language states that “for calendar year 2018, the subsidy shall be up to $166 per month, for calendar year 2019, the subsidy shall be up to $183 per month”. While we know that this does not help all members who are hurting financially, this is a significant accomplishment. If we can ensure the passage of the PEBB Medicare benefit in the final budget, it bolsters our effort to restore a Plan 1 COLA and ensure the state preserves the retirement benefits they promised.

We therefore are asking you to call members of the House leadership and House Appropriations Committee to thank them for including this in their budget. Their names and contact information are listed below.

If we want them to fight to keep the PEBB Medicare Benefit in the final budget, it is important that they know how important it is to us.
