    Retirees will not be required to register through our COA website. The restricted area of the site, "Member Resources", is only accessible to active duty MSP command. Beginning in July of 2020, ALL MSP retirees were combined into ONE retiree association. Membership renewals will be mailed to all past retired members in good standing with a fiscal year that begins in July. 

    Please use "Contact Us" and provide your current information if you do not receive an application/renewal notice. We will send an application either electronically or by mail and will also forward your info to be included in the master retiree membership list. 

    Also, please consider subscribing to the Update to stay current with any retiree  scheduled events or relevant information.

    A link to ORS is also available from our home page for quick access to retirement services.

    If any proposed legislation could adversely impact our retirees, we will communicate that information from the "Action Center" also from our home page. We will include an appropriate avenue for your voice to be heard.

    Here's a reminder of some Internet and Email Safety Tips from our MSP Computer Crimes Unit: - Ensure your Virus Protection is up to date.  Some software is more expensive than others…Norton and McAfee are two companies that are reasonably priced (Disclaimer - MSP does NOT endorse either company…these are just two companies that are well known).

    MESSAGE CONCERNING THE NEW MEDICARE ADVANTAGE (MA) PLAN Roger;  There’s been quite a bit of confusion concerning the new Medicare Advantage program.  Numerous calls to me caused me to have discussion with Jan Winters, State Personnel director.  The confusion stemmed from the use of the term “enlisted”.
