Dear MEA Retiree:
Hope you are enjoying the summer.
Just some recent news I wanted to share.
Our Medicare Part B funds will again be issued via electronic funds transfer (for those who receive their pensions in this manner), expected sometime in June. Hopefully you all received your funds. We will still be required to apply for IMRAA supplemental funds (for those who receive them) using the OLR form available online. But this year those funds will also arrive by electronic funds transfer.
Medicare is finally issuing new cards WITHOUT social security numbers to combat identity theft. They have been working on this for 2 years and expect to start sending out the new cards in June 2018. More information to follow as it becomes available.
Our spring Chapter meeting was a breakfast on June 19th at Junior’s in downtown Brooklyn. Guest speaker was from the ReServe program and discussed part-time job opportunities for retired city workers with non-profits and city agencies. Members really seemed to enjoy her presentation.
Our meeting will be in October (information to follow). I am hoping to have a panel of our own chapter members to talk about “Life After Retirement”. If you would like to be on the panel please let me know. We should all have lots to contribute to this discussion.
Hope to see you all at our next Chapter meeting.
