  Co - Founder
Upgraded and
Enhanced Dental Plan 


So our HISTORY is that;
 In July of 2000, we succeeded in getting legislation passed that re-visited pensions of 557 Retired State Troopers who, had retired prior to July 1, 1992.

As a result of the bill, a substantial increase to their
 pensions was achieved. Retired Troopers Hector Grazio and Ronald Bellanti realized that there was a definite need for a organization that would pursue benefits and preserve benefits for Retired Troopers. In the past nobody had cared 
about the retiree(US). As a result the
 "Retired Troopers Association"
 of Massachusetts was formed on January 1, 2001. 
The sole purpose of this organization is to retain 
and obtain benefits for state police retirees.  
The RTA has been looking for some time, at seeking something for those who were part of the merge. We have been reviewing all database lists, for accurate numbers in the merge, and then playing with various formulas, information is being compiled. We need your help !

The RTA was assisting initially with a group effort, we attempted to provide background knowledge and experience on what was previously achieved. Given all that has gone on, we are 
rethinking some things

They are doing a great job !
     RETIRED 
As we all know, recent publicized articles and newscast regarding a few, have painted the State Police in a bad light.

We remind all still on the job, keep marching, and always conduct yourself in the professional way, one that you have been trained to do, and still do each and every day of your career.

Keep looking forward,
 it will get better !
SAMPLE
Running any organization requires time and money, and your dues in part goes to supporting the efforts of the RTA. Members get a membership card and window decal, monthly newsletter, a chance for a family member to get a scholarship and much more.
Ask us a question.
Amazing that in January 2017/18 pay raises were given to those in state public elected office. Interestingly, there is hope and regardless of the bad press, those involved in the MERGE, we feel should be compensated for that alone.
