MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT MANDY:
National UPMA Retired President
Retirees, I did what I could to prevent the Retirees dues from going up. But the Executive Board voted November 29, 2022 to increase our dues 5.9% based on cost-of-living adjustments from last year. So as of January 1, 2023, we will see an increase of 30 cents a month. This will raise our raise our month dues from $5.15 to $5.45 and our annual dues from $61.80 to $65.45. I do appreciate all who gave their help and support. Mandy Heslep-Whitten, National Retiree President
2023 COLA Highest Since 1981
Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) annuities and Social Security benefits will increase through a 8.7 percent cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for 2023. Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) annuities will receive a 7.7 percent COLA. Both COLAs will be reflected in January 2023 payments
2022 TSP fund performance was dismal. One TSP stock fund was down 26%. What happened after the last significant yearly loss? Read more.
