Wilson County Retired School Personnel began 2012 with resolutions to be active both physically and politically. Dr. JoNelle Zager spoke to members at the Jan. 3 meeting about the necessity of exercise to maintain good health. She shared exercise basics and stressed core strengthening. After demonstrating a few exercises, Dr. Zager held a question-and-answer period.

Members then focused on educating active and retired school personnel about threats to the Texas Retirement System (TRS).

There is a movement to change TRS from a defined benefit program to a defined contribution plan. Defined benefit literally means “when an employee retires, he or she is guaranteed to receive a benefit that is determined through a formula based on numerous factors. A person can never outlive the retirement benefit.”

According to The Voice, the official news bulletin of the Texas Retired Teachers Association, for 95 percent of Texas school districts and 80 percent of all school employees, TRS provides a Social Security replacement. That means the vast majority of school employees must depend on TRS for retirement security.

Representatives of the local group and TRTA plan to visit every campus in Wilson County during January and February. The objective is to share information and encourage awareness of legislature that threatens TRS.

A pre-retirement potluck event will be held in March as well. Stay tuned for further details.
