Legislative Priorities

The Washington State School Retirees' Association (WSSRA) is made up of 17,500 active and retired school personnel. WSSRA's mission is to develop, propose, and support action benefiting all school retirees.

WSSRA legislative priorities for 2022 are:

Support additional payments to the Plan 1 Unfunded Liability.

Support OSPI in allowing more retirees to working in schools. 

Equalize retirment plan 2 and plan 3 retirement benefits. Plan 3 members have more PEBB deferral rights than plan 2 members.

Allow August retirees to collect a Cost-of-Living Adjustment the following July.
