The Association is very active on behalf of its members, and it shows. Here are some comments received from our members:
“Thank you for your intervention with Verizon on my behalf. I had been repeatedly calling Verizon’s contractor for six months. The contractor blamed Verizon for not responding to them. After you alerted Verizon to the life insurance benefits issue I received a response from Verizon and closure to my satisfaction within 24 hours. The services you offer far exceed the value of my contribution.” — Michael Frawley, NYNEX Retiree
“OK everybody…I know times are hard for some but we have a dynamic team (Bell Tel Retirees Assoc) working for us…watching our backs…we need them more than ever now with all of us management and non-management losing alot our retirement benefits, benefits we worked so hard to get being loyal employees of all the bell companies. We made the company the success it is today and they are taking our hard earned benefits away one by one. I am not begging but we need to support this association more than we have in the past…it is crucial that they have the funds available to fight for us for without them we have no one…please send in whatever you can to the association so they can continue their fight for us.” — H.C.-K.
“Thank you, Thank you, I really don’t know how retirees of other companies keep up with all this ‘stuff’ without their own association. These are the reasons you are top on my donation list yearly, the folks who handle these types of things are retired! Unlimited energy, kudos you all of you.” — R.I.
“…thanks very much for your wonderful and successful efforts in behalf of retirees. Your flash concerning Drug Plan changes was informative and reassuring.” — F.D.
“Life for us retirees has gotten very complicated and we would be out in the cold if you did not look out for us. Thanks.” — P.S.
“As always…you are on the ball! Thanks for being there for us.” — J.D.K.
“Many thanks and keep doing what you’re doing.” — M.P.
“Thank you so much for the clarification. As usual, the Verizon letter regarding the retiree prescription coverage was clear as mud. But thanks to you it calmed a lot of very anxious people. If an organization could wear the wings of an angel, BellTel Retirees Inc would have them.” — S.K.
“Thank you for your quick action on this issue. You were on top of it before I even thought to call you.” — S.H.
“Thank you for the electronic version of the newsletter……I wish to continue receiving it in the on-line format please. The newsletter is very informative and well developed. I appreciate all your marvelous efforts to keep us so well infomed. I also made an additional donation of $100 today. You and your team give us hope with your dedicated efforts on our behalf. A heart felt THANK YOU!” — A.K.
