June Retirement Statements

I am writing to inform you of a delay in printing/mailing of the June 3, 2020 retirement statements.  This delay is only applicable to the payment advice statements.  Any retired member who receives a physical check will receive their check as the checks were already printed and mailed.  This delay does not mean the direct deposit was delayed.

One of the machines in the process of issuing retirement payment advice statements broke on Tuesday.  The repair service company is at TAC today trying to fix it.  We do not know the status of the repair as of this writing.  Roughly 1,500 retirement payment advice statements did not get mailed.  It is my understanding the delay will affect those retired members who have a surname beginning A-M (the first half of the alphabet).  This means many of you may not receive your June retirement payment advice statement until late into the month of June.

The function of authorizing the direct deposit is separate from printing and mailing the statements.  All retirees with direct deposit should have received their monthly payment in a timely manner today (June 3, 2020).

We will keep you updated as we learn more.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
