SEIU Local 888 has a new retiree chapter: SEIU Local 888 Union Forever
All members who retire from Local 888 union positions are encouraged to become a member of the new retiree chapter. Becoming a member gives you:
Access to SEIU Member Benefits for discounts on products and services.
Access to the union’s Spark newsletter
Opportunity to work on passing legislation that impacts us as seniors and/or retirees. For example:
- Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) is a law that changes the way your U.S. Social Security benefits are calculated. WEP can reduce your U.S. retirement or disability benefits if you receive a pension based on work and you did not pay U.S. Social Security taxes on those earnings. Local 888 and many other unions support passing a bill in Congress, HR 4540, “the Public Servants Protection and Fairness Act” that would provide meaningful relief to current WEP retirees and fixes the WEP formula for future retirees.
Access to SEIU Local 888 Retiree Member Portal
Connection to other SEIU 888 retirees and the broader labor movement (for example, be a delegate to a labor council in your area)
Opportunity to connect with SEIU’s Union Forever national retiree group
