Retirement/Gainsharing

           $270 x’s per year of service for all SERS/TERS/PERS plan 3 members.

            WEA has a lawsuit against the Legislature for taking away Gainsharing.

                        Gainsharing was a promise from the legislature for all PERS/SERS/TERS                                     plan 3 members.  It was a binding contract that several legislators signed yet they just took it away.

Email – Actuary.state@leg.wa.gov 

Tell them how angry and disappointed you are in the taking away of Gainsharing.  The actuary must- by law- read every email sent in.  Make him read for hours every month about Gainsharing.  Share your story.

Contributions – ESP cannot change their retirement contributions even though there is a law allowing us to do so.  The IRS has denied our ability to change our contribution amounts.  Next year the IRS is promising to take the teachers ability to change contributions as well. 

Contact Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell.  Let them know what it means for us to be able to change our contributions.
