Are you worried about your NYS pension? Governor Andrew Cuomo is giving you good reason to be.
Rochester, N.Y.-- Gov. Cuomo's 2012 budget calls for the addition of Tier 6 to the retirement system. In addition to forcing new employees to work longer for a smaller benefit, the new tier offers a dangerous 401(k) option. How is it dangerous? New employees will have little choice BUT the 401(k) option, as the Tier 6 option is such a degraded benefit. As more employees choose to put their money into 401(k)s, less money will go into the pension system, until the fund becomes insolvent and can no longer pay out pensions.
We have the opportunity to STOP this from happening, but we need your HELP! Please join for a short training on the facts about Tier 6 and how we can fight to protect our pensions!
