Members from Northwestern PSEA Retired attended the Gettysburg Summer Leadership Conference to develop leadership training and help provide you with up to date information.  Becky Travis, Jean Eller, Mary Ellen Stickle, Patricia Wilson and Sam Talarico attended Government Relations School. During their time at Gettysburg, they had opportunity to listen to Dr. G. Terry Madonna, met with legislators, toured the Capitol in Harrisburg, and participated in discussions concerning relationships with elected officials, the upcoming election and redistricting.  Laura Kemling attended the Organizing/Communications School focusing on the Technology Track. She worked on ways to keep our local PSEA Retired web page up to date and accurate so members can quickly access information pertaining to our local PSEA RETIRED group.   Kevin Kantz and Dick Eberlin attended and participated in PSEA Retired School focusing on various classes that were informative on current political climate, citizen advocacy and interacting with legislators that agreed to meet with retired members.  Both attended the Retired Board meeting on the final day of the conference. Mark Bowen, state representative for Member Benefits Retired, attended Membership Benefits Workshop to explore new offers that would increase benefits offered to all PSEA members (including retired members), reviewed current benefits being offered and utilized by current members and discussed concerns involving current benefits offered to members.

Attention All PSERS Members:  Notice of Telephone Scam
PSERS Acting Executive Director Terrill J. Sanchez today issued an alert to all PSERS’ active and retired members about a recurring telephone scam in which PSERS’ members are contacted by individuals claiming to be with the U.S. Treasury or Internal Revenue Service. These individuals state there is an issue with their PSERS’ benefit.  This is a telephone scam and members should immediately hang up.

“PSERS’ members should remain alert to these types of telephone scams,” Sanchez said. “These individuals can be aggressive and may call multiple times. It is important to never give out any personal information or account information. Protect yourself by not speaking with the caller. Simply hang up.”

This telephone scam is very similar to a well-known IRS scam. More information on the IRS scam can be found at:

Other tips for avoiding phone or email scams:

  • Never give out personal information over the telephone.
  • Never give out billing information over the phone, especially if you receive an unsolicited telephone call from a stranger.
  • Never forget that you are in control. You can always hang up, find a company's number and call it directly.
  • Remember this rule of thumb: never give out sensitive information to anyone on the phone unless you initiated the call to a company you are certain is legitimate.
