Provide an appropriate cost of living increase. SBCERA retirees have had their COLAs capped at 2% for too long. Inflation is over 7%. Social Security has announced an 8.7% COLA. We were not allowed to participate in Social Security. I plan to immediately work with San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors and retiree organizations to increase our COLA.
Bring retirees into the decision-making at SBCERA. We live off this pension. We must have a direct connection and dialog with the line staff of SBCERA.
