GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS


MONDAY, FEBRUARY 29th, 2016

9:00 am & 7:00 pm


Also, prior to the night meeting, beginning promptly at 5:00pm, there will be a presentation on MPSO retirement and your pension.


All MPSO members are invited and encouraged to attend this session to ensure you are fully aware and informed of your pension and retirement benefits.  Those members with twenty (20) or more years of service are seriously advised to attend.


    Issues that will be presented will include, but are not limited to:


-What is the retirement process?   Who do I talk to?   When?   What do I need to be eligible for retirement?

-How does the Global Pension Settlement affect me?  What does it include? How are those benefits calculated?

-What are my survivorship options?  Who can I select?   How much will it cost?

-What are my Health Ins benefits in retirement?   How much will Health Insurance cost me down the road?

-What other benefits have I earned?  How do I make sure I receive all the benefits that I earned?

-Accumulated leave?  What is it?  How do I earn it?  Is it better for me to run-it-out or take a buy-out?

-What is Terminal Leave?   How much am I eligible for?  What can I do with it?

-What Life Insurance can I purchase in retirement?  What is appropriate?  What are my options?

-What are the parameters and limits for Deferred Comp and other tax deferred deposits at retirement?


The decisions you make at retirement, along with how prepared and knowledgeable you are as you approach making those decisions, will affect your and your family’s financial situation for the rest of your lives.

Time Donation Program


As most of our member know, member Sebastian Raclaw has has recently qualified for time donations because of his serious illness. The MPSO encourages our members to donate.  If you do decide to help, we prefer the following procedure:


  1. 1. Fill out the donation forms in 8 hour increments.  If you wish to donate more time, fill out multiple forms, e.g. if giving 40 hours, fill out 5 forms for 8 hours.  This allows us to spread out the donations and tailor donations to needs.

  2. 2.Send the forms to the MPSO Hall, or to any MPSO Board members.  If sent directly to the city, you will be charged the hours, whether they are used or not.

  3. 3.Vice-President Carmelo Patti will coordinate the donations.  Questions can be directed to him.


Any generosity is greatly appreciated.  Download the Donor Leave Intent Form pdf.



Residency

As our members are aware, the state law which overruled the City of MIlwaukee’s residency requirement for our members has been winding it’s way through the Wisconsin judiciary.  In the latest twist, the Court of Appeals has now ruled that law unconstitutional, essentially restoring the City’s right to impose residency.


The Wisconsin State Supreme Court has now decided to review this case, and we have no firm time frame as to when we can expect a decision.


Meanwhile, the City’s official position is as follows:


“On July 21, 2015, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals rightfully issued a unanimous decision upholding the City of Milwaukee’s 75 year old residency ordinance. The ordinance requires all city employees to become residents of the city within 6 months of hire, and to remain residents as a condition of being employed by the city. The Court’s decision held that under the Home Rule Amendment to the Wisconsin Constitution, the City of Milwaukee is entitled to enforce the ordinance in spite of a state statute enacted in June, 2013 to the contrary.

The City of Milwaukee is committed to continuing its residency rule. However, in consideration of uncertainty during the time it may take to know whether the Wisconsin Supreme Court will review the case, the City has agreed to continue to suspend enforcement of the ordinance. The City will fully enforce the ordinance once the Supreme Court either refuses review or affirms the Court of Appeals’ well-founded opinion. Employees who disregard the ordinance do so at their own risk.”
