The RTA salutes all police officers for your service ! 
Like many states, Massachusetts is dealing with financial problems, and how they handle them
 just may affect you our members. 

We are watching very closely for anything both financial or otherwise, that will impact our members in a negative way, 
and even a positive way. 

After January 31, 2010, MSP Retirees
started paying 20% on their insurance.

We are watching very closely anything that may 
affect current retirees.
We take pride in the
 fact that we research anything that has the potential to, or that will 
affect any "member" of
 RTA
RTA is proud to continue it's tradition of getting
 the most for it's members out of the 
Eye and Dental Plans. We are always looking
 for the best plan for you !
We issue RTA 
Window Decals and Wallet Membership Cards and newsletters to all 
of our members.
New administration, new changes. We will attempt to keep our members up to date on gun rights and LEOSA. 

The MA Goal organization
 is important to you. 
Goal in MA
(Gun Owner Action League)   is an organization that is   
      worth looking into. 

They are watching out for
     you, just as we are !

RTA HISTORY 

 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
 for retirees.  
Our new Delta Dental Plan starting on 7/1/16
 now will cover 
100% of charges for  Diagnostic and 
Preventative services.
For more info contact Hector Grazio.
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.

NEW IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Another meeting is scheduled on MAY 9, 2017
 of Troopers ​who retired after 7/1/1992.
