MRU is committed to educating retirees on issues so they can intelligently lobby. Some of the present issues are:
Repeal of the Government Pension Offset (GPO) attached to Social Security.
Repeal of the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) attached to Social Security.
Protection of health benefits for all retirees.
Allowing retirees the benefit of subtracting their health care premium costs from their Pension/Social Security before federal and state taxation.
Raising the base of the Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA).
Extending the penalty reductions of Options B & C of the State Pension selection to all who retired prior to July 1, 2004.
Assuring retirees representation and a vote on all local Insurance Advisory Committees (IAC), as mandated by state law.
