Retiree Medicare Presentation

Retiree Medicare Presentation
On September 12, 2013, LBPOA President Steve James hosted a luncheon at the POA Park for our retired officers in order to present them with information on their Medicare, health, and deferred compensation benefits.  Representatives from the City of Long Beach HR Department, ICMA-RC, and Johnston Insurance were at the park to help answer questions and provide reference information.

Additionally, on September 13, 2013, a Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge ruled that retiree health care promises are a vested right similar to pension rights and are subsequently safe from future employer changes.  While this issue will undoubtedly be reviewed by other courts, it is a significant ruling that deserves our attention.
