Dear Colleagues,

For those of you who potentially could have, or have already had your Social Security benefits reduced due to your CalSTRS pension, the webinar below may be of interest to you.

In Solidarity,
Jim Mahler, President
AFT Guild, Local 1931

Thank you for signing the AFT Petition “Repeal WEP and GPO – Stop Penalizing Our Teachers and Public Employees” along side 11,000 of your peers. These harmful penalties effect tens of thousands of AFT retirees and will effect thousands more active AFT members when they retire. Thank you for adding your voice alongside your fellow members to tell congress enough is enough.

That is why AFT is hosting a WEP & GPO Informational Webinar on Monday, October 31 from 12:30pm to 1:30pm Eastern Time. This is your chance to hear the latest information on legislative efforts to repeal WEP and GPO, receive an overview of Pension System Cost of Living Adjustments (COLAs), and ask any questions about how you and your colleagues are impacted by WEP and GPO.

Please click here to register for the upcoming webinar where you will also learn about immediate and long-term steps you can take to help protect the earned benefits of AFT members and to ensure a more secure retirement for all.

In Unity,
