RE: Mandatory Social Security for Teachers

Dear Teacher,

You may not be aware of how serious the contemplated
change to mandatory social security will be for our
pension system.

Districts will need to use an additional 6.2%
from the budget to fund their share.
That is money coming right out of your supplies,
books, and salary increases.

Meanwhile, its another 6.2% matching payment from your take
home pay. With the offset rule, you collect
from the best plan, and get little or nothing from the other.

CTA is urging you to write or call your U S senators now.
Let them know how you feel. Urge them to vote down mandatory
social security in the Moynihan bill, B.21.

Send to: or call in (B Boxer) 559-497-5109
(D Feinstein) 559-485-7430

Honorable_____________ (Barbara Boxer & Diane Feinstein)
US Senate
Washington, DC 20510

Sample Text

To the Honorable _________________

I am writing to urge you to vote against mandatory Social Security.
I have worked all my life as a school teacher and faithfully paid
into my CASTRS fund. My retirement fund has been managed well.
I deserve the peace of mind a secure retirement will bring.

If teachers are required to contribute to Social Security, it
will break my retirement fund.

(Sign your name and address.)
