The Wilson County Retired School Personnel (WCRSP) met Oct. 2 in the Floresville Independent School District conference room. The meeting was called to order by President Bill Gleeson, followed by committee reports, with Nancy Garland clarifying points on the changes with the new Medicare Advantage Plan under TRS-Care.

Guest speaker Kay Below, District XX president, then spoke to the 32 members present. Below spoke of Tim Lee as a strong director for Texas Retired Teachers Association who has emphasized that “we” retired teachers and all Teachers Retirement System (TRS) members are at war with special-interest groups in Austin. She also pointed out the findings of the TRS studies on the defined benefit pension plan and the TRS-Care health-insurance plan, which were made public on Sept. 1. She also presented examples of what individuals can do to get in touch with legislators.

The TRS pension trust fund needs to be actuarially sound and can be by incremental increases in the state’s contribution. Also, TRTA members want the Legislature to restore funding to the TRS-Care program and maintain the TRS-Care retiree health-insurance program. The health program was cut in the last session.

The WCRSP also met Nov. 6, and after regular committee reports, speaker and member Nancy Garland presented a mindful, personal program, “Getting Your Ducks in a Row” to 29 members about end-of-life decisions. Her presentation touched on critical topics such as the importance of a will, Physicians Directive, Medical and Durable Power of Attorney, and a Living Will. She emphasized how certain documents, burial information, and wishes need to be documented and kept in a safe place for a designated executor. She provided checklists and informative handouts. Planning ahead can prevent problems for family in the future.
