New Group to Compete with PERI

You likely received a mailing recently from former PERI Administrator, Bill Winegarner, asking you to join his newly created group, POP-5. Despite what he may be saying within his promotional materials, Bill’s effort, although well meaning, is a duplication of the great work already done by your association, PERI.

It’s important for you to know that the five leaders of the associations representing members of the state pension funds, including PERI, met with Bill this past winter to inform him that we are perfectly capable of handling our members’ concerns and that the creation of POP-5 was unnecessary and a distraction to members such as you.

Your PERI Board is unanimous in its dedication to continue to effectively protect your pension as we have for more than 65 years. Additionally, we are excited about the new strategic plan adopted by the board that will be providing you with new benefits and resources in the coming months. This will make PERI an even more indispensible resource for our members.

We strongly recommend you carefully consider whether the additional cost of a membership in POP-5 is worth your time and money.
