The Shrewsbury Retirement System is one of 104 state and municipal retirement systems in Massachusetts.
The system is administered by a 5 member Retirement Board consisting of:
1 ex officio member
1 member appointed by the 4 previously mentioned board members
1 member appointed by the Board of Selectmen
2 elected members
The Board, while operating independently, is bound by Massachusetts General Law Chapter 32. Chapter 32 establishes benefits, contribution requirements and an accounting and funds structure for all municipal retirement systems. The Retirement Office is made up of the director who is responsible for over 946 active, inactive and retired members and beneficiaries.
PUBLIC RECORDS On June 3, 2016, Governor Baker signed An Act to Improve Public Records into law. Many of the provisions in the new law will take effect on January 1, 2017.
The Executive Director of the Shrewsbury Retirement System is the designated Records Access Officer (RAO) for the retirement board, and may be contacted to assist in compliance with the new law. See the "Contact Us" section to the right of this page.
