Who we are
MAR is the voice of Maine public sector retirees. MAR represents several “generations” of retirees with diverse needs and interests. Many retirees continue to work, others are caring for older parents, or grandchildren. Our members give generously of their time as volunteers in a variety of organizations.
MAR Files COLA Lawsuit
This is a class action, brought on behalf of more than 28,000 retired state employees and public school teachers, seeking (i) to have the Court declare unconstitutional the action of the 2011 Maine Legislature eliminating for three years and thereafter reducing annual cost-of-living adjustments to their pensions, and (ii) to have the Court require Defendants to make annual cost-of-living adjustments as required prior to enactment of the 2011 legislation.
