Help on the way for members
cut from RetirementPlus
Help is on the way for thousands of MTA members who were recently told by the Massachusetts Teachers’ Retirement System
that they are not enrolled in the RetirementPlus
program, although they believed they were enrolled.
This problem only affects members who transferred
into the MTRS from another Massachusetts public
employee retirement system.
In response to member anger and concern, the
MTA’s Legal Services Division filed more than 300 cases
for members in about 80 local affiliates and has met with
the MTRS executive staff to secure corrective action for
these and other affected members.
The MTA and MTRS are jointly working on a
solution that will avoid litigation, correct the law and
secure the RetirementPlus rights of thousands.
