In addition, we attend NMERB Board of Trustees and New Mexico Legislative Committee meetings, such as the Investment Pension and Oversight Committee. We report back to the UNMRA Board any issue that may affect your defined-benefit pension. Our involvement is important and it makes a difference when we are a presence at these meetings. Legislators notice when visitors identify themselves as UNMRA. If you’d like to attend these meetings, please contact us.
