I have been working for a Catholic School for 36 years as a teacher. On March 17th, 2016 all the teachers received a letter from the San Juan Archdiocese that effective June 1st, 2016 our pension plan will terminate. In February 2, 2016 the pension plan certified that I would receive $925.00 monthly beginning September 1, 2016. It has been a devastating blow to Catholic school teachers who had counted on those pensions to supplement the Social Security checks they’ll be getting. We never knew that the pension plan could be terminated. We do not have a copy of the plan. The pension was part of our contract with the school. With this, I would have to work the rest of my life. The letter I received, the officials signed off with “God bless you all”. The Bishop, Roberto Gonzalez, said that the church does not have money, really?
