How to Join UPI Retirees

Congratulations on your recent retirement! If you’ve held an academic position with a university served by UPI, you’re eligible to join our UPI Retirees Chapter. UPI works for you as a retiree. UPI keeps you informed about proposed legislation and organizes lobbying efforts. When retirement benefits are threatened, UPI provides legal representation in the courts. And we promote adequate funding for higher education in Illinois at a time when our universities are fighting for their lives.

Membership dues are modest ($2 or less a month, depending on your pension). To have SURS deduct your dues, please sign and return the retirees membership form. This will save work for you and for our hard-working staff.

Renewing Your Retirees Chapter Membership
If you are already a Retirees Chapter member, thank you for joining. Please stay with us! 
This a critical time to support the union, safeguard your benefits, and fight to fund public higher education. Membership dues are still quite modest ($2 or less a month, depending on your pension).

Paying by Dues Deduction 
If you pay by dues deduction through SURS, you don’t need to re-enroll. You have saved work for yourself and for UPI’s hard-working staff. If you are not a SURS member, please email jmiller@upilocal4100.org for directions.
