GSA Auckland

CHANGE OF BRANCH MEETING DATES!! 

The Auckland Branch June meeting (AGM) and the September meeting will both be held on the second Tuesday of that month, instead of the first Tuesday which has been the norm.  Please note the change of dates on your diaries or calendars.  We look forward to seeing you.

STOP PRESS!!   CHANGE OF JUNE AND SEPTEMBER BRANCH MEETING DATES FOR 2019

Please note that the AGM which is normally held on the first Tuesday in June will this year, 2019, be held on the second Tuesday in June – June 11.

Please also note that due to the way the 2019 calendar falls the September Branch meeting will be held on the second Tuesday in September – 10 September.  This is to allow a report of the 2019 Council meeting, being held 7-8 September to be presented to our members.

Please make a note of these dates and we look forward to seeing you at these meetings.

AUCKLAND BRANCH NEEDS YOUR HELP

Auckland Branch is in great need of new Committee members to replace a number of Committee members who have left for varying reasons over the last two to three years, and to replace those current Committee who will not be standing at the AGM in 2019.  

Being a Committee member is not an onerous position, but it is a voluntary one.  Currently there are eight Committee meetings per year which normally run from 10.30am – 12noon. A travel allowance is paid to Committee members for Committee meeting attendance.  There are also four Branch meetings (including a Christmas function) where it is hoped that Committee will attend when possible, as it is a chance to meet and talk with the wider Auckland membership.

By being on the committee you are supporting the GSA Board, the advocacy group who protect the rights to the GSF/NPF allowance that you currently receive and that your spouse/partner will receive in the future.  You do not require in depth knowledge to be on the Auckland Committee as you will develop this in time and you will be supported in doing so.  Our current committee are all great people and are happy to advise and/or support any one new.

If being on the Committee is not for you, but you are able to assist the Secretary with organising catering, finding speakers for Branch meetings, setting out chairs, the writing of newsletter articles, proof reading etc. we would also love to hear from you.

Please give serious consideration to assisting our branch as we cannot do it alone!

For any questions or offers of support please contact the Auckland Branch Secretary, Adrienne, on 0800 888 472 or email auckland@gsa.org.nz

SPOUSE SPOTLIGHT (ANNUITY NEWS APRIL 2018)

This section was prepared by Adrienne Dodge, Secretary of the Auckland Branch. As Secretary of a larger branch she receives many calls through the 0800 number. Adrienne is noticing that there is an ever-increasing number of annuitant spouses/partners and family who have no knowledge of what the GSF/NPF annuity is, how to apply for it, how long this income will exist and anything about the Government Superannuitants Association.  Please click on this link, read this article and ensure that your spouse/partner and/or your family are aware of this.

Annuity News and Auckland Branch Newsletter

If you currently receive your six monthly Annuity News and Auckland Branch Newsletters by post but are open to receiving them via email please contact the Auckland Secretary on 0800 888 472.  This will assist the GSA to keep the rising publishing costs of these newsletters, and rising postage costs down.

Have you moved house recently?

If you have moved house in the last six months and have forgotten to let us know, please phone the Auckland Secretary on 0800 888 472.  DataCom, the administrators of your Annuity would also like to know.  Please give them a call on 0800 654 731.

Auckland Branch is always looking for new speakers for our meetings.  As our membership is far reaching and many of our members belong to other groups who have speakers at their meetings, we ask that if you hear someone speak whom you think would be good to have at an Auckland Branch meeting please gather their contact details and pass them on to the Branch Secretary; Adrienne Dodge auckland@gsa.org.nz or 0800 888 472.
