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 membersip form. This will save work for you and for our hard-working staff. (To cancel at any time, just email bporoori@upilocal4100.org.)

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. (To cancel at any time, just email bporoori@upilocal4100.org.)

Paying Annually by Check
To continue paying your dues annually, email bporoori@upilocal4100.org) to find out when your membership expire. Then send a check for your next year (payable to University Professionals of Illinois) to UPI Local 4100, 1901 W. Carroll, Suite 200-200B, Chicago IL 60612. But please consider another option! 

It’s easy to have SURS deduct your dues monthly. Simply sign the retirees membersip form and return it to UPI at the above address. Signing up just once will save work for you and for the UPI staff. (To cancel at any time, just email bporoori@upilocal4100.org.)
