(December 11, 2018) PERI Chapters should be aware that there may be several organizations soliciting membership for OPERS retirees during the holiday season. PERI reminds everyone that we are the only association exclusively representing OPERS members when it comes to protecting their pensions and we have been doing this since 1948. Also remind them that it was PERI not any other group that was responsible for defeating HB 413 this year. Our victory protected the 3% COLA for pre-2013 retirees.
We will not advise members on whether there is any value in belonging to these other groups. PERI annual members will be receiving their membership renewal invoices this week and next.
Please urge your members to renew their membership as soon as possible! Feel free to have members call us at (800) 247-7374 if they have any questions or concerns. Thanks and Happy Holidays to everyone!
