Retirement

While you may be retired, NTEU is not. NTEU continues working for retirees on a number of fronts, from advocating for pro-retiree issues to speaking out against proposals that threaten your pension and health benefits.

Senior coupleNTEU fights every day to protect your hard-earned retirement by testifying before Congress, closely monitoring legislation and beating back proposals that threaten your pension. The union:

  • Safeguards and opposes any efforts by Congress or the administration to reduce retirement benefits and Federal Employees Health Benefit Program (FEHBP) coverage for retirees.

  • Supports legislation to address the escalating costs of prescription drugs.

  • Makes sure that the critical cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) to federal pensions is not reduced or eliminated.

  • Monitors Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) proposals to maintain the TSP’s independence and low fees, and to ensure adequate choice in investments.

  • Presses OPM to eliminate its backlog in all areas, including for retirees, and urges Congress to properly fund OPM so call centers can be appropriately staffed and improvements can be made to web-based functions.
