MTA Retired Members

MTA Retired Header 

MTA believes that our members should have a financially-sound retirement upon the completion of active employment.

Of key importance to our members is a fully-funded retirement plan with adequate benefits, including cost-of-living increases and adequate and affordable health insurance.

The MTA has a full-time ESP/retiree organizer on staff to work on these important issues. Steve Day can be reached 1-800-392-6175 or by email to
