Please don't post your comments more than once. I moderate all comments and a delay between posting and appearing is part of the drill here. I get to all comments in due time. Please don't continually repost the same comment. Only one will be posted. Also, due to the volume of email I'm getting right now, I am unable to guarantee that I will respond to all personal emails sent to my email address. I am being buried alive under an avalanche of email. Please go to the PERS Oregon Discussion (POD) Group, linked below (left) under LINKS to post your question and get a variety of answers.

Northern Exit

Considerable confusion still exists about the newly enacted HB 2456.  This bill, just recently signed by Governor Kitzhaber, removes the state income tax subsidy to PERS members who (a) retire on or after 1/1/2012 *and* (b) who had creditable service prior to October 29, 1991.  The confusion stems from a rumor -- absolutely untrue -- that anyone who moves out of state after 1/1/2012 will lose the tax subsidy.  There is no truth to this rumor.  If you retire on 12/1/2011, you will still be able to live out of state without loss of the income tax subsidy no matter when you choose or need to move.  Those of you who are concerned about this can rest assured that a move to Washington or other parts provided you are fully retired before 1/1/2012.

I hope that clarifies.
