Join an Emeriti or Retiree Association!

Retirees at a joint CUCRA-CUCEA meeting.One of the best ways you can advocate for retiree rights and benefits at UC is to join a retiree or emeriti association.  Each of our four associations belong to the Council of UC Emeriti Associations (CUCEA) or Council of UC Retiree Associations, which regularly meets with UCOP staff to promote items of importance to UC retirees such as retiree benefits and privileges.
