SUAA/UIC United Fighting For Our Pensions, Too

UIC United President Merrill Gassman (right) and Bukola Bello, Director of the Illinois Retirement Security Initiative (left) speak on retirement issues.

THE UIC chapter of the State Universities Annuitants Association (SUAA), UIC United, not to be confused with the new faculty union of a similar name, with over 1,600 members exists to promote the individual and collective interests and welfare of its members and of all UIC retirees.
IT ENDEAVORS, in association with 52 other chapters in Illinois, to achieve legislation favorable to retirees and to keep members informed of pending legislation that can be of importance to them. In addition, the chapter disseminates current information on issues of general concern to senior citizens, provides a liaison between retirees and the campus administration, provides opportunities for socializing among members, and works to assure adequate funding of the Illinois State Universities Retirement System (SURS).
THE UIC United Chapter seeks ways in which retirees can help further the goals of the campus through volunteering, re-employment, financial support, or other activities. Membership is open to all SURS members, including current faculty-staff, annuitants, their spouses and survivors. Annual dues can be paid once a year or by deduction from monthly SURS benefit checks.
