You worked hard to earn a decent retirement. Let AFSCME help you protect it. Union representation is the key to a secure income and dependable health care coverage whether you are working or retired.
Chapter 31 has more than 30 retiree sub-chapters that meet monthly and form a statewide network that includes around 27,000 members. It's the largest organization of public-sector retirees in the state. (Click here for a schedule of when and where sub-chapter meetings are held)
There are increasing attacks on retirement security and AFSCME works to educate, empower, and protect retirees. From union headquarters in Washington, D.C., the Retirees Organization is protecting Social Security and Medicare. It's the leading voice for public-sector retirees on Capitol Hill and in the senior citizen community.
On the state level, our chapter lobbies state legislators, leads the fight to preserve the stability of the pension systems, and organizes retirees to defend their benefits.
Membership in AFSCME Chapter 31 is only $3.00 per month and can be taken directly from your pension upon your authorization.
