Join April 15 Rally at the Capitol to Protect Retiree Benefits

– CALL TO ACTION – RPEA Supports Health Equity for Retirees Act!

RPEA is partnering with the New York City Organization of Public Service Retirees to lobby in support of the Health Equity for Retirees Act. Pursuant to the bill (S.8388-A, Harckham / A.7866-A, Zebrowski), no public employer shall diminish the health insurance benefits provided to retirees and dependents below the level in effect as of November 1, 2022.

WHEN: Tuesday, April 15 at 1:00 PM

WHERE: New York State Capitol, Fourth Floor Senate Side, Albany, New York

The City of New York is trying to move its retirees out of traditional Medicare and into a Medicare Advantage Plan. Retirees from the New York metropolitan area will be traveling by bus on the morning of April 15 to Albany.

RPEA will also be participating in planned news coverage to urge that the legislation be adopted. Besides the City of New York, other retirees across the state are being targeted. Working together, we are stronger, and RPEA facilitates that.
