The Retired Public Employees of Nevada (RPEN) was formed in 1977 to meet the challenges public employees face upon retirement. The challenges then and now are health insurance and protecting the Nevada PERS fund. Today RPEN continues its work to protect and support these issues for retirees and those still working. If you receive a monthly Public Employees’ Retirement System (PERS) pension, you do not automatically belong to RPEN.
RPEN works for retired and active public employees by:
- Being a strong voice for retired and active public employees at the Nevada Legislature.
- Supporting Nevada’s Defined Benefit retirement system.
- Serving as an advocate at PERS and PEBP (health plan) board meetings and meetings of other legistlative,
state, and local goverment boards and committees.
RPEN has 18 chapters statewide. They meet on a regular basis with speakers who make presentations on topics of interest for public employees, retired and active. Chapters: Boulder City, Bi Valley (Yerington), Carson City, Churchill, Elko, Fernley, Henderson, Las Vegas, Lincoln, Mineral, Northern Tri-County (Battle Mountain, Lovelock, Winnemucca), Pahrump, Sparks, Summerlin, Tonopah, Two Rivers (Overton-Mesquite), Washoe (Reno) or White Pine.
