The UIC Chapter of SUAA
The UIC chapter of the State Universities Annuitants Association (SUAA), 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 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 U. of I. payroll or SURS benefit checks. Membership applications may be obtained by clicking here.
