Building for the future since 1948
At this time, the Retirement Fund has temporarily suspended walk-in consultations while continuing to service members through e-mail and telephone to limit in-person consultations. Members, retirees, and beneficiaries who require in-person services (e.g., to complete a retirement application) are encouraged to call the Retirement Fund office at (617) 316-3800 to schedule an in-person consultation with Retirement Fund staff. The Retirement Fund is practicing social distancing measures to conduct in-office consultations in separate rooms with Retirement Fund staff via a Zoom video meeting.

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Retirement Fund is a private trust created in 1948 by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, the predecessor agency to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (“MBTA”) and The Boston Carmen’s Union, Amalgamated Transit Union Local 589. Our mission then, as now, is to provide retirement benefits for our members – the transit workers and other employees of the MBTA. To ensure that the pensions earned by active and retired members, and their beneficiaries, remain secure, we are dedicated to managing a strong and diversified investment program.
