SAVE ERB COLA
Save Your COLA Now!
Save ERB COLA is a grassroots organization defined by and for a single cause: protect New Mexico Education Retirement Board (ERB) retiree benefits. We are seeking, through court action, to compel the ERB to protect retirees’ vested property rights by granting the full 2% Cost-of-Living-Adjustment (COLA) due on July 31, 2013, as well as the COLA increases in future years provided for in the existing pension plan.
ERB Petitioners got their day in court! They are now waiting the decision of the NM Supreme Court! The Supreme Court just requested supplemental briefs from both sides to assist the justices in making this important decision. Sara Berger, the Petitioners attorney, is working diligently on this recent request from the Court, which is due September 24th. Sara has worked and continues to work hard on behalf of all ERB retirees. Because the petitioners live on modest incomes, Save ERB COLA seeks assistance from current ERB retirees to help with the legal costs of $30,000. So far ERB Members have donated $13,000 to support this legal challenge. Please Donate Now to help cover the legal expenses.
