Notice of 2018 Annual Membership Meeting
Each year the Board of Directors of the Savannah River Site Retiree Association (SRSRA) holds an annual meeting to discuss the financial, political and overall outlook for retired Site employees. This year’s meeting will be held on April 17, 2018 at the Etherredge Center on the University of South Carolina Aiken campus. Member registration will begin at 11 a.m. and the meeting will start promptly at 1:30 p.m. It is expected to conclude at about 4 p.m.
Guests invited to this year’s meeting include management from the Department of Energy-SR, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions and Savannah River Remediation, politicians from South Carolina and Georgia, and various organizations who provide important services to the Site retirees. Those service organizations will set up tables and be available to provide information about their services to retirees. Their tables will be open from 11 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. to discuss various issues one-on-one (See p. 2). Be sure to register before the break to be eligible for door prizes.
The Etherredge Center is located on the University of South Carolina Aiken campus. Information about how to find the center and where to park can be found at www.srsretirees.org . The center’s address is: 471 University Parkway, Aiken, SC 29801 (803-641-3327). Attendees are encouraged to carpool with one or two others because school will be in session and the four parking lots are expected to be in high demand.
Any questions about the meeting can be addressed to Dick Frushour (803-648-8126), e-mail email@example.com.
Why should YOU join the SRS Retiree Association?
There’s increased strength and greater shared purpose with numbers.
- More members guarantee more support from elected and appointed officials
- More members leverage a better response from SRS and the DOE
- More members provide a more representative retiree viewpoint
- More numbers increase funding for our Retiree Resource Center
Without you, our benefits and resources will die out and we’ll all suffer. We’ve worked hard for those benefits – let’s not give them up!
SPECIAL IMPORTANT MESSAGE!
Annual Rx Plan Review October 15th - December 7th
Your biggest medical savings can be from your annual review of your Medicare Rx program. Medicare CMS, Consumer Reports, and other organizations strongly encourage these annual reviews. You can do this (a) by yourself online with Medicare.gov (b) through calling RightOpt (c) in person by appointment or mail at the SRSRA Retiree Resource Center, or (d) through a local insurance agent.
Seventy percent of the retirees’ plans reviewed by the SRSRA Resource Center resulted in out-of-pocket savings by changing plans, saving those retirees over $747,000 for the past two years, because the Drug Plan formularies and coverage tiers change so much each year.
How ever you do your annual review, do it! Don’t leave your hard-earned money on the table!
