Hopefully you have enjoyed looking at the old photos featured over the past few months that the Museum generously allowed us to have. We are back to random images your webmaster finds amusing or interesting. As with all the Retired Association offerings your input and suggestions are always welcome.
The following is a request from the Firefighters Museum. Please consider helping out.
We will be hosting Fun at the Firehouse Free Day on Saturday, August 2, 2014. We need volunteers from 9:30 am-2pm. Below is a list of some of the activities. If you have a team of men who want to use your grill and cook burgers and hot dogs in the parking lot, that would be awesome.
The Denver Fire Department in cooperation with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has posted a documentary on YouTube dealing with th eline of duty deaths of Bob Crump, Charlie Drennan Jr. and Rich Montoya. This production is extremely well done and we encourage everyone to watch it. The link is provided below.
The new roster is at the printer. As has been mentioned often in the last few months we want to give everyone a chance to opt for the online roster. The roster that is found here is always the most current as it is updated monthly.
There were a number of people upset when the were unable to change the amount of federal tax withholding on their distributions as they had previously been able to do. The Deferred Comp Committee brought this concern to TIAA-CREF and they now are able to offer this same option to participants.
Thanks to the efforts of the HealthCare Committee and Local 858, pre-65 retirees are now able to get the same firefighter physical that active members get. This is by far a more complete and comprehensive physical. Click on the link provided to learn more about the physical. For this or any other health care concern you can contact the Health and Benefits Director, Cory DeBaere, at 720-236-8490 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now that the initial rush for information is trending down it would be a good time to schedule a one-on-one appointment with TIAA-CREF if you have questions or want advice regarding your investments and asset allocation. You can call them at 855-259-4648
We are always looking to be responsive to our members and to help us achieve this we ask that you check the Online Voting area under Member Resources regularly to provide us input and opinions on various issues. Thanks for taking the time to help make us a better organization.
