From the Director's Desk - March
Hello Milwaukee County Retirees,
At the time I am writing this, the State of Wisconsin, and City and County of Milwaukee have declared public health emergencies as a result of the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Additional information on COVID-19 can be found on here.
Our top priorities are the physical and financial safety of our staff and members so we are implementing social distancing and teleworking to limit physical contact. This may mean longer turnaround times for requests as we are not physically working together, but we will continue accepting mail, faxes, phone calls and emails. We want you to know that we are committed to ensuring pension payments continue in this time of uncertainty and at this time, we do not anticipate any interruptions to monthly benefit payments.
In the March Communicator, I announced the Annual Meeting which was scheduled for April. This meeting will be postponed to a date when we can safely conduct an in-person meeting. We will use the Communicator to keep you updated on the status of the Annual Meeting and the pension team’s operations.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Michael S. Harper, Chairperson
Laurie Braun, Vice Chairperson
