Enhanced Dental Plan
In July of 2000 successful legislation was passed that re-visited the pensions of 557 Retired State Police Officers who had retired prior to July 1, 1992
This resulted in a substantial increase to their
pensions. As a result of this legislation,
Hector Grazio and Ronald Bellanti realized that
there was a definite need for a organization that
would pursue and preserve benefits for the retired
Trooper. In the past, nobody had cared
about the retiree.
The Retired Troopers Association of Massachusetts (RTA) was formed on
January 1, 2001. The sole purpose of this
organization is to retain and obtain benefits
The RTA has been looking for some time, at seeking something for those who retired after the merge.We have been reviewing all database lists, for accurate numbers of who was involved in the merge, and playing with various formulas. Information is still being complied for you.
In light of the recent issues the Department of State Police is experiencing, we are unsure as of now
what can happen with pension reform, however,
we will continue to monitor things.
The RTA is assisting only, and will not lead this effort, but will provide background on previous efforts,
