Retired Seattle Police Officers Association

Pension Office News | August 2017

There are no retirements to report this month.

  • The RAP Picnic was held on August 3rd, the hottest day of the month. Yet, many hardy retirees showed up in their shorts (ugh!) and straw sun hats. Bocce ball was to start at 11:00 a.m., but the teams were too tired, so after two-hour naps, the six teams took the field. After 30 minutes of grueling competition, it was agreed to end the finale in a three-way tie for first place. The other three teams got a participation award (abuse.)
  • Attention SNOWBIRDS – get your winter address into the Pension Office. Call Stephanie at 206-386-1286, option 2, or email
  • If a medical provider wants you to pay up front, have them call UMR to verify your benefits. The UMR phone number is on the back of your medical card for your provider. Also, your medical coverage from the Board does not include any doctor’s concierge or administrative fees. We only cover medically necessary expenses.
  • Don’t forget that the Retired Officers Banquet is at the Range Pavilion on Wednesday, September 13, 2017.
