Lap Blanket donation to the OVH

The Ohio Chapter Retirees donated lap blankets to the Ohio Veterans Home in Sandusky.

During the convention a scheduled class taught members to create lap blankets. The blankets were part of a nationwide effort to provide them to veterans homes. Your chapter retirees donated several to the local Sandusky OVH.

Thank you MariBeth  and Anita .

We were honored to have Jack Wilkins,

UPMA National Retiree President,

in attendance at our Ohio Chapter Convention

and spoke on his concerns for the retiree 

organization.

2018 COLA ANNOUNCED FOR FEDERAL RETIREES

copied from UPMA GOLD

 

The 2018 cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for Social Security recipients and annuitants in both the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) will increase 2.0 percent, the Social Security Administration announced today.  Because the COLA amount is not more than 2%, both CSRS and FERS retirees will receive the same percentage.  CSRS COLA and FERS COLA are awarded based on the following formula:  
•  If the CSRS COLA is more than 3%, the FERS COLA is 1% less 
•  If the CSRS COLA is more than 2% but less than 3%, then the FERS COLA is 2%. 
•  If the CSRS COLA is less than 2%, then the FERS COLA is the same. 

 
The 2018 federal retiree COLA is much larger than last year's 0.3 percent increase and the zero COLA in 2016.  It's also the first year the CSRS and FERS COLA has been 2.0 percent or more since 2012.
