Milwaukee Police Supervisors’ Organization


Pre-Retirement Presentation 

Thursday, November 3rd, 4:30 PM

Due to ongoing requests from the membership, the MPSO has again scheduled this popular 90 minute presentation.  While all members are encouraged to attend, for those members with 20+ years service credit, it’s practically mandatory.

Topics will include:

An itemized overview of your earned retirement benefits and how your decisions effect your benefits.

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 effect me?  What does it include? How are those benefits calculated?What are the income tax and possible tax penalties relating to the GPS and other payments.

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 those benefits that I earned?

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

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

What Life Ins can I purchase, who pays for it, how much is it, what is appropriate and are there 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.

This presentation is restricted to MPSO members.  Be advised, the MPSO does not allow individual pre-retirement meetings due to time constraints.  We will likely have another presentation in early 2017.

MPSO Board Regular Election

The MPSO conducted an election for 2 board positions for the 2017 to 2020 term.  The 3 candidates were Gregg Duran (inc.), Joseph Hall, and Benjamin Canniff.  Duran and Canniff prevailed and will begin their terms January 1st, 2017.


The MPSO now has an application for your mobile device!  Available for OS and Android devices, the app has quick access to labor contracts, legal procedures, contact info, events, critical incident advice, and more.  Push notifications allow us to send timely reminders or information (don’t worry, it won’t be abused).  Just look up the MIlwaukee Police Supervisors’ Organization in your app store and download - it’s free.  You will need to register the first time you log in.


The Wisconsin Supreme Court has ruled that the state statute limiting municipalities’ latitude when imposing a residency requirement was legal.

Simply put, MPSO members cannot be required to live within the City of Milwaukee.  However, the law does allow the City to require our members to live within 15 miles of the boundary, and the City is indeed going to enforce a 15 mile limit.

According to the most recent Roll Call posting, the Fire and Police Commission intends to enact rules by September 15th, 2016.  It will describe various time frames, terms, and procedures.  It is anticipated that employees currently living more than 15 miles (download the City Residency 15 Mile Radius Map pdf) from Milwaukee will have 6 months after October 11th, 2016, to comply with the rule

Time Donation

Our colleague, Sebastian Raclaw, is grievously ill, and is eligible for time donations.  If you decide to help, please follow the following method:

  1. 1. Fill out the forms in no greater than 8 hour increments, e.g if you intend to donate 40 hours, fill out 5 eight hour forms.  This allows us to spread out donations.

  2. 2.Send the forms to an MPSO Board member or drop them at the Hall.  We will submit them as needed.  If you submit the hours directly to the City, the time will be deducted from you whether used or not.

Questions may be directed to Carmelo Patti. Download the Donor LeaveIntent Form pdf.
