Policymakers Have Plans to Change the Teacher Pension System
May 25, 2017
The governor and some state legislators are considering big changes to the teacher retirement system.
CEA Retirement Specialist Robyn Kaplan-Cho explains some proposals currently being considered and how you can join the fight against these plans.
Call your legislators and urge them to
- Reject any plans that would shift the cost of teacher pensions onto cities and towns. The shift would increase property taxes, reduce funds for education, and cost teaching jobs.
- Protect teacher pensions and keep the existing teacher pension plan.
- Oppose any increased teacher pension payment.
