On the PERS front, most window retirees have gotten their August 1st check showing the deduction for Attorney Fees in the Strunk case. As expected, the August take home benefit increased by a small amount, or it decreased by an equally small amount. The amount by which your benefit changed on August 1 over July 1 should indicate how much your benefit take home will *increase* on September 1. Add the amount of the attorney fee back to your take home and you'll have your future take home resulting from the August 1, 2008 COLA. PERS sent out the stubs for the August check yesterday and most members should start to see them today or in the next few days.
