Re: “County Administrator Responds

I am a retiree of 25 years with Pima County. My last payment in June of 2010 for my insurance was $123.09 for my medical and dental, and I live out of state. Plus, the premium benefit was $150 from the ASRS, part of my retirement package. Due to the changes and being forced out of the county system, my medical premium with the State system was going to be $700 a month minus the $150 premium benefit. There was no way I could afford that, thankfully I got a job with benefits but because I am out of state and no longer have county or state coverage, I also lost my premium benefit and now my medical costs me $330.56 a month with no help from my retirement.

I use to love working for the county and looked forward to early retirement, a chance to enjoy life, now it isn't possible until I am 65. I am currently 60. The only thing I can say is "Thanks for nothing Pima County, you got 25 of my best years and I worked hard for you, and all I get from you is worry and no sympathy for our situation. If it wasn't for all of us hard workers, you wouldn't have your high paying jobs."

Thank you Pima retirees group for trying to help us....
