advocating for Minneapolis teachers' pension security
With your support, the Committee of 13 advocates for our defined benefit pensions. We work to make sure that you have the facts about your MPS/TRA defined benefit pension. We also make sure that the legislators who serve on Minnesota's Legislative Commission on Pensions and Retirement have up-to-date information on MPS/TRA pensions.
We provide facts that counter the biased information distributed by groups
seeking to undermine our retirement security. You'll find up-to-date news from the Legislative Commission on Pensions and Retirement, the Minnesota Legislature and Congress on this page and in our latest newsletter. Come back often.

PENSIONS IN THE NEWS
DEC.11, 2014 -MN REP. JOHN KLINE PUSHES MEASURE TO CUT RETIREE PENSIONS
A Minnesota congressman wants to solve the impending pension solvency problem by cutting some benefits. Representative John Kline (R-Minnesota) has introduced the bill into the House.
Kline's bill would target "multi-employer" pensions, which is mainly union pensions. Such retirement vehicles are often the most vulnerable financially, according to a pension expert.
