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, a substantial increase to their
 pensions was achieved. As a result of this legislation, 
Retired Troopers Hector Grazio and Ronald Bellanti realized that there was a definite need for a organization
 that would pursue and preserve benefits for    
 Retired Troopers. In the past nobody had cared 
about the retiree. Hence, 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.  
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 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 our background knowledge and experience on what was previously achieved. Given all that has gone 
on, we are rethinking some things

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 !
Running any organization requires money, and your dues supports the efforts of the RTA.
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.
