Retiree Connection

Retiree Connection

Retiree Connection is a group of retirees who act as a focus group for MOSERS on matters relevant to state retirees. The members meet several times a year, stay informed on current topics and have collaborated on several new initiatives for MOSERS. They are also a great resource whom we can contact (or who can contact us) when rumors or concerns arise that may affect MOSERS retirees.

Six Word Stories 

Our Retiree Connection members shared their thoughts on being a MOSERS retiree, a member of the Retiree Connection group and/or retirement in general using creative Six-Word Stories.

Retiree Connection is not a lobbyist group nor a political action committee nor are members asked to take a position on proposed legislation. In addition to being a focus group for MOSERS, the group also previews and makes recommendations for the upcoming year’s Coffee Break program and acts as host for the Coffee Break seminars held in their region.
