Subject: 14th Check
The Fire & Police Pension Board meets
the last Tuesday of every Month. On April 26, 2022, 0930am at the Pension Office. Pension Fund’s agenda will include an item regarding the authorization of a 14th Check for all Police and Fire retirees.
As you know, if the Fund achieves the necessary investment return of 10.25% annualized over the past 5 years the Board has the discretion to issue a 14th Check.
The Board voted to issue the 13th Check at its January meeting and all retirees received the 13th Check in the second week of February 2022. The necessary investment hurdle for the 13th Check was 8.25% annualized over the past 5 years.
I believe we will surpass the 10.25% annualized investment return required by state law authorizing the Board to consider a 14th Check.
While I believe the Board will vote unanimously to authorize the 14th Check, if the necessary investment return allows it, I suggest retired members attend the Board meeting on April 26, 2022 at 0930 a.m. to support the Board in its decision regarding this issue.
Thanks for the hard work it takes to achieve these performance levels.

Zoom Meeting January 11 at 1:30 p.m.
In-person meeting will NOT occur
Please excuse the last minute change!
We will have a Zoom meeting (instead of in-person meeting) on Tuesday January 11, 2022 at 1:30 pm.
This decision was not made lightly.
We have a couple of Board members that are unable to attend. Also the increase in Covid spread is another factor. Our membership is made up of older citizens. We would feel extremely bad if one person got sick as a result of our meeting in person.
So, this meeting will be held on Zoom! See information below.

Subject: Pension COLA
Are we to expect a COLA raise next year in light of surging inflation ??
The answer is yes …exactly how much will not be known until approximately January 15, 2022. From what we know currently know, the COLA will be greater than 6%.
Each retiree who retired prior to 9/30/1999 will receive the full COLA in their January 31, 2022 pension check.
The rest of us will receive 75% of that 6% number or 4.5%…assuming the final inflation COLA number is 6%. If the final number is greater than 6% it will be 75% of the the greater number.
The Pension Law caps the COLA increase beginning at 8%, the full explanation of the capped COLA can be found in the Pension Law.

Subject: Sept 14 ZOOM Meeting - Officers
I want to update you on the Association’s meeting on Tuesday.
The positions of President, Treasurer, Parliamentarian and Police Corresponding Secretary were at the end of their term.
Today, the President started to call for the Nominating Committee’s creation from the floor.
A motion was made to not appoint a Nominating Committee at this time. The reason was lack of participation online due to Covid. The motion stated that we will visit the situation every 3 months until a live meeting can be held safely. The motion was seconded and passed.
Our By-Laws state a Board member will serve in his or her position until removed by election unless they choose not too.
Current Board members stayed on. I want to thank the Board members for your service. I have a lot of faith in their opinions.
