Welcome to the Houston Municipal Employees Pension System’s (HMEPS) source for guidelines and links to our new social media presence.  HMEPS now has a presence on Facebook (a social networking site).  The creation of HMEPS’s Facebook site is to create an additional platform in which HMEPS may educate its members by posting relevant information about the pension plan, administration and operations. HMEPS’ social media presence is intended to be a non-public forum and is not intended nor created to be a general public forum, nor is it intended to discuss specific individual participant information.

 

HMEPS’ social media tools are also not meant to replace HMEPS’ traditional methods of communication, but instead provide new ways in which to engage with our active members, retirees, beneficiaries and others who have an interest in HMEPS.  Our HMEPS website will remain a primary official source of information regarding the system.

 

Participation is voluntary.  However, we hope you’ll “like” us on Facebook.  If you already have a Facebook account, you’ll need to simply sign in and look for Houston Municipal Employees Pension System.  If you don’t have an account, you’ll need to create one.  There is no cost to join.

 

Privacy

 

HMEPS will post only public information on our social media sites.  For example, if you have questions regarding your specific benefits or participation, you are welcome to call the HMEPS office at 713-595-0100 to speak to a counselor. You may also direct questions in writing to the Houston Municipal Employees Pension System, 1201 Louisiana, Suite 900, Houston, TX  77002.

 

When using any social media platform, the public should exercise caution by carefully reviewing personal social media privacy settings whether the account is new or already established (some social media platforms will share user information unless the user declines such sharing.). Users should never open unfamiliar hyperlinks or applications as doing so could result in a malware (malicious software) download such as a virus.
