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

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.
