PUBLIC EMPLOYEES - ACT NOW TO PROTECT YOUR RETIREMENT SECURITY!
Updated On: Feb 27, 2013

ACT NOW TO PROTECT YOUR RETIREMENT SECURITY!

Two bills currently before the Washington State Legislature would put public sector employees’ retirement security at risk. Both SB5856 and SB5851 would create a defined contribution retirement plan (401k) that aims at supplanting public employees’ defined benefit plan, or pension.

When the market crashed in 2008, it decimated millions of workers’ 401ks across the country. These bills would expose public employees in the State of Washington to the same kind of risk.

TAKE ACTION!

  1. PROTECT YOUR RETIREMENT!: Call your representatives on the Senate Ways and Means Committee and tell them that SB5851 and SB5856 are bad policy and would harm workers’ retirement security. Urge them to oppose the bills and not to pass them out of their committee!
  2. CALL THE LEGISLATIVE HOTLINE in Olympia at 1-800-562-6000 and tell your representatives to protect your retirement by opposing SB5851 and SB5856.

Don't let these bills become law!
