To all retired or retiring Texas teachers

TRS Care for 2018: Age 60-65 will have $4000 deductible - 80/20 plan. No other option
Age 65 and up: Humana Medicare Advantage - No other option
$1.5 billion dollar shortfall.

This is pretty devastating. One of our Indivisible leaders shared it on FB.

If you have Facebook you can follow TRTA's Live Event. I watched it this evening, but they keep archives on FB.

Next legislative session: They are coming for our pension

2. It's the free-market version of scraping the bottom of the barrel
