Georgia Retirement Plan
The Georgia EMS Association has partnered with financial service partners and PointeNorth Insurance Group to assist in the development of a Georgia EMS Retirement Fund. This has been in the works for some time and significant progress has been made.
The biggest obstacle that we face right now for creating a Georgia EMS Retirement Plan is the low number of EMS association members in relation to the total number of EMS professionals in Georgia. Actuaries are structuring the plan so that only members of the Georgia EMS Association will be eligible for the Pension. In order for the actuaries to begin creating the framework for the financing of the pension fund, the membership level needs to be at a minimum of 10,000. Increasing membership in the association is the first step in achieving the goal of creating an EMS Pension for Georgia. This is a goal that can only be achieved with the cooperation of the entire EMS Community of Georgia. View more information here.
