The Board of Trustees has amended the annual retirement insurance benefit distribution process. The new process does not change the amount of your annual benefit. The change is for retirees that have health insurance through the PBC Firefighters Employee Benefits Fund. If you have a credit balance of five hundred ($500.00) dollars or less after your retirement insurance benefit is applied to the annual cost of your medical and dental premiums, you shall receive a check for that amount from the Retirement Insurance Fund instead of a credit card from Anchor Benefits Consulting. This change is meant to make it easier for you and will also save the Retirement Insurance Fund some administrative expenses for the year.
