The Retired Public Employees of Nevada, Lincoln County Chapter, is gearing up for their annual Christmas/Recruitment party scheduled for Dec. 14. The gathering provides a great opportunity to get to know what RPEN is all about, ask questions about your benefits, and get to know your fellow retirees.

RPEN speaks for retired public employees and has information regarding the protection of your benefits. The group is open to those who receive a retirement, disability or survivor allowance for the Nevada PERS, those who are an employee of a public agency covered by Nevada PERS vested, or age 50 and older, or those who are the spouse of a person who is a Nevada retired public employee and a member of Nevada’s program of group health insurance.

The Christmas party is free for all retired public employees, and will be held at the Hansen’s Fine Dining Room in Caliente at Noon. There will be pizza and salad. Please contact an RPEN member listed below by Dec. 7 to ensure there is enough pizza.
