Information and Communication
are two of our main objectives of the Retirement Division,
since our members are no longer linked to information at their
work site. As a result, we will continue to produce timely
information in our newspaper, and to announce all meeting
times and dates for our active and retired members.
Legislation is also a high priority
as each year we introduce a legislative agenda that includes
bills of interest to our members. We support various other
bills which affect not only state and municipal retirees but
current workers, all retirees and the elderly.
Representation is very important.
We represent our members at every meeting of the State of
Connecticut Retirement Board, as our President, Ron McLellan,
is a Board member. We also intervene for members who are having
a difficult time with "the System", encountering
disability, medical and workers’ compensation problems,
just to name a few.
Savings for retired members include
discounts for hotels, auto rentals and Walt Disney’s
Magic Kingdom. Also, members have access to a Union Mastercard
program that features a competitive annual percentage rate
with no annual fee and discounts on legal services which includes
a free thirty minute consultation and many other benefits.
