Greetings Milwaukee County Retirees!

I hope you have enjoyed the first few days of Spring. The RPS team is very excited for warmer weather and is looking forward to the first blooms of the year.

Each year, in Spring, the Pension Board of the Employee’s Retirement System of Milwaukee County holds the Annual Pension Board Meeting that includes presentations on the performance of the pension fund investments as well as comments from subject matter experts and local officials. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we cannot hold this event in person. Instead, the information will be presented in writing, with the April Communicator, and in video format on the RPS website throughout the month of May. Please keep an eye out for instructions on how to access the online portion of the annual meeting in the April Communicator.

We cannot wait until we can begin holding informational and educational events in person and will do so as soon as we can meet safely. Up-to-date information on the COVID-19 virus can be found on the County’s website.

Thank you for taking the time to read this edition of the Communicator and please do not hesitate to reach out to the RPS team if you have any questions.
