      A message from CSEA President Danny Donohue

      DD_official_web_12A decision to retire should be made only after long thought and careful planning because people are living longer than ever before. With that in mind, CSEA has prepared a special Retirement Guide.

      The CSEA Retirement Guide is an excellent resource to help you make retirement decisions that best suit your needs. It contains a wealth of information that will help you set goals, evaluate options, and anticipate future needs. And remember, it is never too early to start planning for retirement.

      You can be assured CSEA’s concern for our members does not end when they retire. The union continuously strives to improve the quality life of all working people – active and retired!

      One more thing. When you leave the job, remember to join a CSEA retiree local. (A postage-paid membership application is in the back of the guide.)

      The union has 21 retiree locals throughout New York state and three locals in Florida. They hold regular membership meetings where you can get the latest information on a wide range of issues important to you and also spend time with friends and former co-workers.

      In Solidarity,

       

       

      DANNY DONOHUE

      President

          Preparing for Retirement

          It’s never to early to prepare for retirement although 18 months before your anticipated date of retirement the New York State and Local Employees’ Retirement System (NYSLERS) suggests requesting an estimate of your retirement.

          The Retirement System will provide you with estimated amounts payable under the various options. This is done through A Request for Estimate Form.

          Form RS 6030: is available from your employer, from the NYSLERS’s headquarters in Albany or from the Retirement System’s traveling Information Representatives.

          A request for an estimate does not commit you to retire on a certain date, but will assist your retirement planning.


          For additional details on Form RS 6030 including how to request one and what to do with it when you do receive it, consult your 2008 CSEA Retirement Guide.

          You will find information to help you schedule a recommended consultation with a NYSLERS Information Representative including a listing of meeting hours and locations around the state where you can ask specific questions about your benefits and get information on your individual circumstances.
