The AFSCME Retirees is made up of hundreds of thousands of retired public service workers across the country who have come together to fight for retirement security. We are retired nurses, social workers, sanitation workers and correctional officers to name just a few of the thousands of public service jobs we did while working, but we haven't quit just because we're retired.
We are part of the American Federation of State, County & Municipal Employees (AFSCME) the leading voice for public service workers and retirees. AFSCME Retirees began operation in 1980 and operates more than 300 state and local groups nationwide.
AFSCME retirees to stand together to protect and improve your retirement benefits - like pensions, Medicare and Social Security. Our local chapters lobby Congress, appeal to state legislators, even fight city hall in the effort to defend retirement security.
During your work life, you had a strong union -- AFSCME. Now, let AFSCME be your retirement union.
