Good news for many retirees

Good news for retired members enrolled in the NYSHIP Empire Plan through school districts and municipalities! The final version of the governor's budget did not include a freeze on the reimbursement for Medicare Part B premiums or the elimination of reimbursement for IRMAA for Part B by employers. NYSUT retired Empire Plan members mobilized and sent 15,867 faxes to legislators concerning this issue. Thank you for your help.
