October's Monthly Meeting Presents:
A 2017 Benefits Update
Madeleine M. Luck, Senior Manager, Health & Welfare Plans, Altria Client Services, HR Benefits Department will present "Important 2017 Benefits Information with a focus on changes for Salaried Retirees under age 65"
Altria is implementing changes to the Health Care Benefits provided by the company for salaried employees and salaried retirees under 65. For salaried retirees under 65, Altria is moving to a Consumer-Driven Health Plan (CDHP) to better manage growing health care costs by focusing on preventive care, making informed choices and seeking affordable care options, while still offering highly competitive “gold-level” benefits. Please come to better understand how these changes will affect you, as a pre-65 salaried retiree, and your family and how you can use your benefits in the best possible way. Benefits representatives will be available for questions from all retirees.
You are encouraged to register for this meeting to insure we have a seat for you. (click event on the right)

The Children’s Book Bank Needs Your Donations!
The Children’s Book Bank exists to put as many books as possible into the hands and lives of children in need. By providing opportunities for children to read and be read to, the Children’s Book Bank is an important tool in improving school readiness for prekindergarten-aged children and enhancing literacy in school-aged children.
An important study shows the most successful way to improve the reading achievement of low-income children is to increase their access to print.
In middle-income neighborhoods the ratio of books per child is 13 to 1; in low-income neighborhoods the ratio is a staggering 1 (age appropriate) book for every 300 children.
PMARA RETIREES – BRING YOUR DONATIONS OF NEW OR LIKE-NEW CHILDREN’S BOOKS TO OUR JULY, AUGUST, SEPTEMBER or OCTOBER MEETING. THE VOLUNTEER SERVICES COMMITTEE WILL SEE THAT THEY’RE DELIVERED TO THE CHILDREN’S BOOK BANK.
