Separate Fact from Fiction
Rumors seem to circulate each year and they become particularly prominent during the legislative session. We are happy to address any rumors you are hearing on our website through Rumor Central. Submitting your question about a topic on Rumor Central is a great way for you to stay in the know and to separate fact from fiction.
Here are a few points to remember:
The provisions of MOSERS pension benefits are based on state law. That means for a change to occur, the legislature must introduce a bill and pass it. The Governor has until mid-July to either sign or veto a bill passed by the legislature each year. The regular legislative session runs from January to May of each year.
If you are hearing rumors about benefits other than your MOSERS retirement, life insurance, or long-term disability benefits, please contact that benefit provider directly for information.
If you hear a rumor, validating it or disputing it by following the points above may relieve the anxiety that is often associated with the rumor mill – and make you a retirement rock star!
