Where are we now in this COLA process? What are the next steps needed to go forth?

I'm afraid they are going to cut the TRS care fund and the anuity because of covid 19.
Candis Houston

Thank you Cheryl!!! You are doing awesome work!
Laura Huddleston

Any progress on GPO and WEP? Thanks to all. I have to go; my 40 Zoom minutes are up. Good to see Ray Mc- CC misses him!
Lydia Carrillo

Dena is awesome!
Wayne Stalsworth
56:49
I'm also afraid if we get a COLA it will only be for teachers who retired 5 or 10 years ago. I didn't get an efective pay raise the last 10 years. That effected my monthly income so I need a COLA too. I don't want to be left out.
Wayne Stalsworth
58:20
I need insureance. My current plan is to try to stay healthy because I can't even afford an office visit even with TRS-CARE.
Candis
01:00:38
what is COLA
Chris Ardis
01:00:55
Cost-of-Living Adjustment
Candis

Vergie Clark

I'm over 68yrs old with United Health Care. The premium stayed the same, co pay waived for PC doctor. However my medication co-pays increased by 300%
Lydia Carrillo

Excellent job, Dena! Thank you for presenting this part of the TRS.
Wayne Stalsworth
01:12:41
We hold the line every year. Thats why there is never a COLA. There is always an excuse. I say Charge now!
