The UIC Chapter of SUAA

The UIC chapter of the State Universities Annuitants Association (SUAA), with over 1,500 members, exists to promote the individual and collective interests and welfare of its members and of all UIC SURS members – annuitants as well as employees. It endeavors, in association with 52 other chapters in Illinois, to achieve legislation favorable to SURS members and to keep them informed of pending legislation that can be of importance to them. In addition, the Chapter disseminates current information on issues of general concern to retirees, acts as a liaison between retirees and the campus administration, provides opportunities for socializing among members, and works to assure adequate funding of SURS.

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.  Further information on applying for membership may be obtained by clicking here.
