Police Fire Retiree Survey
Police and Fire Retirees: We Need Your Help Dear Police/Fire Support Organization: Because fire and police retirement ages are justifiably younger than workers in other pension plans, greater opportunity exists for our retirees to work full or part time during the early years of retirement. IPPFA is researching the topic of public safety retirees “second careers” and will add this subject to future training sessions and modules in our PSfit educational program. To assist us, we are asking police and fire retirees to participate in a brief survey. Please consider placing this announcement in your newsletter, Facebook page or other distribution where retired members will see this opportunity. Retirees interested in participating should visit ippfa.org. The survey is in the first rotating position on the home page. This survey will be available until January 4, 2021. Thank you for your assistance on this important effort. Dan Ryan (Skokie PD Pension Board) Illinois Public Pension Fund Association Elgin, IL. November, 2020
