Today is the PSPRS Defined Contribution committee meeting. There are two glaring issues that came out.

1. We have some members leaving the 401a plan to private money managers after they retire. Our plan is on it’s way to being a 1 billion dollar plan. When you stay in the plan you get very low fees, institutional class investments, and the State and the PFFA here to help you if you have a problem. Once you leave the PSPRS/Nationwide plan you are on your own as an individual customer. An analogy would be buying your groceries at Costco versus a mini mart.

2. Almost 50 percent of retirees in the PSPRS 401a are leaving all of their money in the “fixed” account. Our “fixed” account is at 2.75 percent, which is great, however some may want to have an advisor help them diversify their DROP money.

We at the PFFA are not here to tell you all what to do with your money, however these two stats are a little troubling. If you have any questions, message us here or give us a call.

Stay safe!!!

I moved my balance to fixed for the time being. Went from making 19% to losing money under Jackass Biden!

Dear Local leaders,

We are well on our way to campaign for proposition 310, the Arizona Fire District Safety Act. We will be on the ballot in November and in order to promote this critical Arizona Fire Service priority, we need money for signs and other advertising.


We also ask that each of your leaders has a conversation with your Chiefs to inspire them to raise money from vendors, their own pockets and other supporters. I will be sending emails to AFCA and AFDA leadership today as well to solicit their support.

Checks can be made out to:

Arizonan’s for public safety

Thank you so much sisters and brothers!!!!

The inception of the PFFA came about as a successor to the Arizona State Firemen’s Association, which was founded in 1924. During that time, Tucson Chief Joseph Roberts was the head of the Firemen’s Association. Interestingly enough, activists in that original organization were mostly chiefs and the organization was open to all firefighters, professional and volunteer. One key activist in the AFSA was Phoenix Deputy Chief, Jake Siken.
