Seven members of Wilson County Retired School Personnel (WCRSP) traveled to Boerne Oct. 11 to attend the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) District XX Fall Convention at Ye Kendall Inn in Boerne.
District XX President Kay Below welcomed members from 14 local units. Merita Zoga, assistant director of governmental relations, and Tim Lee, executive director, updated information on the status of the Teacher Retirement System (TRS) and the Aetna Medicare Advantage plan. As of Aug. 31, 2011, TRS is able to make benefit payments until 2075 under current funding. The next valuation will be available in November.
Elected officials were invited to join the TRTA members for lunch and conversation. The first to respond was State Rep. John Kuempel. He was seated with WCRSP, where he shared his insights on issues facing educators as well as the budget woes faced by legislators. TRTA members should remain vigilant and contact legislators regularly to ensure that retirees are not ignored.
Among other business, WCRSP member Jesse Ramos was selected to serve on the District XX Nominating Committee.
