LIVINGSTON COUNTY RETIRED TEACHERS ASSOCIATION
The Livingston County Retired Teachers Association meeting will start with registration at 8:30 a.m. and buffet breakfast at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 21, at Edinger’s Filling Station, 423 W. Madison St., Pontiac; a program and business meeting will follow at 9:45 a.m. Reservations are due no later than Friday morning, Aug. 17; call Sue Schnell, treasurer, 815-867-0750 or Navana Ahrends at 815-842-0579. Cost is $12.
Susan Benhart, outreach coordinator for the Teachers’ Retirement System of Illinois, will be the speaker. She reaches both active and retired teachers to review pension and health insurance benefits, which includes ensuring Tier II members are aware of the calculation, retirement age and cost-of-living adjustment factors. Her goal, and the goal of TRS, is to always keep the membership as informed as possible in any aspect that is relevant to them.
Applications have been sent to Livingston County schools for the two $250 scholarships LCRTA gives each year. All active teachers are encouraged to participate. Applications are due by Sunday, Sept. 30, and winners will be announced at the October meeting.
All meetings are open to any retired teacher who lives in Livingston County or who taught in Livingston County. Guests are welcome.
