Welcome to the Retired States Employees’ Association
The Association’s object is to safeguard the rights of its members and to promote measures for their welfare with particular regard to pensions. Our members have worked in schools and hospitals, in the emergency services and law enforcement, at the harbours and airport, for States Works, or in many other technical, policy, professional and administrative roles in the various States Departments, Committees and trading bodies. As the current Chair, I am well aware of long-standing concerns that the Association has previously had only extremely limited opportunity to communicate directly with members and I am confident that the website will be a significant improvement. The Committee, http://www.rsea.org.gg, will be able to keep you informed, in particular, about the Public Servants’ Pension Scheme and the likely effects of any changes in the Rules. As the website develops, we plan to provide information on other subjects such as States’ policies on pensions and benefits generally, as well as on broader issues of interest to those who have retired from public service. The Committee welcomes your ideas for topics or links that could be included.
The RSEA first came about in 1994 to provide representation for former States’ employees when dealing with matters affecting their occupational pensions. Your Committee believes that it still remains essential to work closely with other staff organisations and the States on your behalf to maintain that representation.
