What's New
May 2021 President's message

Dear fellow retirees,

Hope all is well and you have received your vaccinations. The RPEA Board is going to have an in-person board meeting for the first time in a year at Bruno's Restaurant in Scotts Valley on May 26 at 1pm. Our Legislative team has been working with Becky to update our webpage with the latest news -- lots of info for you there. Of special interest is AB 386, legislation that would authorize PERS to do higher risk investments with private parties without sharing a lot of currently required information. The secrecy in the proposed legislation has caused our president (Rosemary Knox) to write a letter to the committee. It is even more helpful for members to write a short note to their Assembly member if concerned. Check out our web page for details and write if you agree with RPEA's position.

A link to the State RPEA position letter is provided that lays out the multitude of objectional issues.
