Understand Your Retirement! Learn about the Offset Penalties at the Next HCAFA Exec Committee Meeting.

  • HCAFA members:
    Will you get both Social Security and SURS benefits when you retire?  No!  If  you take your SURS benefits, your Social Security benefits will be decreased.  Not fair?  Come find out more from Sara Stephens at the upcoming HCAFA meeting this Friday, April 26th from 10-12:30 at Harper in  L200. Sara has been researching about and working to eliminate the GPO and WEP offset penalties that people are hit with if they have paid into both Social Security and SURS.  Please note that Sara is not giving financial advice at all, but is giving out information that many are not aware of.  In doing so, she is trying to repeal these repressive government penalties.  Come hear all about it!  A light lunch will be served.
    And, a gentle reminder that Wed., April 24th at 4 pm is deadline to vote for IEA Higher Ed Council positions.  If you did not receive the light blue envelope from IEA or have misplaced it, please contact Kim Trader at IEA:  1-800-252-8076 X2250 or kim.trader@ieanea.org.
