To receive the most up-to-date information about current issues affecting your retirement benefits, make plans to attend an upcoming District Meeting.  The meetings, which are held in conjunction with the 2023 Legislative Session, will focus on any proposed legislation that could impact the Retirement Systems of Alabama (RSA) and your retirement benefits.  

 

Members of the Alabama House and Senate will be invited to attend, as well as local elected officials.  This provides an excellent opportunity to hear firsthand from your elected officials as we outline and discuss ARSEA/APEAL’s plan to return to COLA-style annual increases in retirement benefits that do not adversely affect RSA’s unfunded liability.   

 

Representatives from RSA, SEIB, the local Area Agency on Aging, United Healthcare, AMBA and other groups have also been invited to each meeting to provide important information about the programs and services they offer. 

 

There is NO cost to attend and meetings usually last about an hour.  We allow 30 minutes before the meeting for attendee registration and one-on-one interactions with our staff, service providers, speakers, and elected officials.

 

Identify the meeting location nearest you and make plans now to attend. We also encourage you to invite other current and future retirees in your area to participate and learn more about the many benefits of being a member of ARSEA/APEAL. 

 

Space is limited in some locations, so please RSVP as soon as possible. Email retire@arsea.org or call 334-834-9116 to confirm your attendance for you and any guests you plan to bring with you.

ARSEA/APEAL 2022 CONVENTION DREW MEDIA ATTENTION

 

ARSEA/APEAL held its 42nd Annual Convention at RSA’s Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Prattville September 21 & 22, the events featured an opening luncheon keynote address by Gov. Kay Ivey and a political forum with the Republican and Democratic nominees for statewide constitutional offices.  Both events attracted substantial media attention from newspapers and television stations across the state.

 

Our “Meet the Candidates” event, which drew in-person appearances from candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, attorney general, and other offices, was the lead story on Montgomery’s most-watched news channel, and the report included live coverage from our convention and several prominent mentions of ARSEA/APEAL.

 

The Opening Luncheon featured Gov. Kay Ivey’s keynote speech at the convention’s opening luncheon similarly attracted reporters from all media outlets represented in the Capitol press corps.

 

The ARSEA Foundation presented a contribution to the Elderly Nutrition Program to Alabama Department of Senior Services Commissioner Jean Brown. Brown discussed the program and its expansion in the state.  The Foundation’s Wellness Expo featured exhibits from sponsors, vendors and others with screenings and flu vaccinations provided by Jackson Hospital and SEIB Wellness. ARSEA/APEAL members were glad to see this event on our schedule again.

 

Our FOREPAC dinner and “Legislator of the Year” award presentation to Speaker Mac McCutcheon prompted lawmakers from Mobile to Huntsville and all points in between to attend. Speaker McCutcheon was clearly touched and emotional as he accepted our award just a little more than a month before he retires from the Alabama Legislature.

 

On Thursday morning, Retirement Systems of Alabama Deputy Director of Administration Jo Moore was the keynote speaker for our Awards Breakfast which was the closing event.  She left us with a positive outlook despite the bleak economic forecast we are seeing now.

 

Because of the important information that was shared during our two-day event, we plan to provide summaries and some videos of the presentations to our members over the next few weeks which will be available in our member-only section of the website.
