From the Director's Desk - November

Hello Milwaukee County Retirees! I hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. It’s a great time to reflect on everything we’re thankful for and enjoy the company of friends and family. However you prepare for the holidays, please find time to enjoy the season! I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the Interim Director of Retirement Plan Services. I am excited to continue to serve the employees and retirees of Milwaukee County in this new capacity — some of you may already know me as the Operations Manager for the past four years. Please know, it is our team’s highest priority to ensure that pension payments are paid in accordance with the ERS rules and ordinances and that we endeavor to do that with great customer service.
