  • Work with the State Employees Retirement System (SERS) and the State Legislature to preserve and maintain the fiscal stability of the State Retirement System.
  • Work with the Pennsylvania Retirement Security Coalition (PARSC) to develop a grass roots advocacy program for Coalition members so as to be prepared to have a consistent response to any issues that may affect state retirees.
  • Development of position papers on issues affecting state retirees for use by PARSE and PARSC in grass roots advocacy programs.
  • Present and advocate the position of PARSE to members of the State Legislature, the Governor’s Office, SERS and key administrative staff on issues of importance to state retirees.
