Pension Tax

Good Legislative News!!

We have heard from our representative that the 10 percent state tax exclusion on our pension, approved by the Legislature, remains in effect for 2015.  It survived the Implementers and is now part of the 2015 budget.  The 25 percent state tax exclusion for 2016 and the 50 percent exclusion for 2017 remains as part of this law.

We thank all our members who took the time to contact their representatives to endorse this fairness issue, as well as those who attended Lobby Day to advocate for it.

Senator Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) has introduced a new bill, S.1651, that would repeal both the GPO and the WEP. This bill will be a companion to Rodney Davis’ House bill, HR 973. We are delighted to see this! We have been waiting for this bill for months. We want to thank him and the other 11 Senators who have signed on as original sponsors.

Teachers Retirement Board Letter

Dear TRB Health Plan Member:

The Teachers’ Retirement Board (TRB) changed our prescription plan and our Pharmacy Benefit Manager January 1, 2015.  If you have claims from 2014 that you purchased at an out of network pharmacy and have not previously submitted them for reimbursement, you need to submit your claim with Caremark immediately to be considered for reimbursement.  If you used an in network pharmacy or mail service for your prescriptions prior to January 1, 2015, there is nothing further you need to do at this time.
