I am writing in support of restoring the teacher's COLA at 2011 rates. When I planned my retirement, it was with the COLA being in place. Last year my COLA was.....$350 for the year! This is unacceptable. Also, as I was caretaker for both parents and my father-in-law, I had to retire a bit earlier than planned. Along with that, I had to take my social security at 62 with the 25% penalty because I needed the money. There should be some allowance for people that need to retire to care for their loved ones. (I realize this is a federal issue, but it is an unfortunate reality.) I plan to attend the January 31 meeting. Where will the meeting take place? Thank you for your consideration, Nancy Whyte Sherman
