UC Retirees' Association at Berkeley (UCRAB)


The UC Retirees' Association at Berkeley (UCRAB) serves critically important functions to ensure that a level of benefits appropriate to retiree needs is maintained by campus and statewide University of California administrators. A strong and large association guarantees that voices and concerns are noticed.

The campus associations gain enormous leverage from being part of the Council of University of California Retiree Associations (CUCRA) and organizations like the Staff Assembly that represent members throughout the University of California system.

In addition to advocacy efforts, UCRAB offers social and travel events – quarterly luncheons with speakers from the scholarly and cultural world of the campus and broader Bay Area, day trips to nearby attractions such as Monterey Bay Aquarium, Angel Island and Sonoma, and occasional longer trips by public transport to special locations such as Hearst Castle and Yosemite National Park. 


The UC Retirees' Association at Berkeley invites you to join fellow retirees in an organization dedicated to maintaining and enhancing retiree benefits, providing current information on possible changes in those benefits, as well as encouraging camaraderie through sponsorship of a variety of activities.

Membership is open to all retired staff and academic appointees of UC Berkeley and any other UC locations. Additionally, current UC Berkeley employees who are eligible for retirement (over 50 years of age and vested in the UC Retirement Plan) may join.

You may purchase a single year of membership for $20. Pay online here.
