CEUI Retirees’ Division is open to all former state employees and their spouses.

Information About The Retirement Division

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 on our website www.ceui.org

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 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, Carl Chisem, 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 and auto rentals. 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.

If you would like more information about the CEUI Retirees’ Division, please call Kathy Chubet at the Union at (860) 343-8722 or 1-800-622-3359 x722.

Questions? Concerns?

The SEBAC 2011 and SEBAC 2017 collective bargaining agreements made some changes to the terms of retirement for state employees in the State Employees Retirement System (SERS).  The Comptroller’s website includes a lot of information explaining changes which will apply to state employees who plan to retire effective August 1, 2022 or later.

You can find an explanation of the changes, Frequently Asked Questions and webinars that you can replay at https://osc.ct.gov/2022-retirement/
