Dear Future Retiree:

I want to share with you the reasons I joined MSEA-SEIU Local 1989 when I retired and why I think you should, too.

  1. I want my pension and health insurance benefits protected.  MSEA-SEIU Local 1989 is the only union that regularly introduces, pursues and closely monitors legislative action on all issues affecting the Maine Public Employees Retirement System and the State Employee Health Insurance Plan. As a retiree member of MSEA-SEIU Local 1989, you’ll have an effective voice in the Maine Legislature, advocating for you every day.
  2. I want a voice in the larger issues that affect state employees and retirees.  By becoming a MSEA-SEIU Local 1989 retiree member, you can assure your voice and the voices of other retired workers will be heard loud and clear – both in Augusta, and through our affiliation with SEIU, you will also have an advocate in Washington, D.C.

There are many other benefits such as reduced dues and access to group benefits and discounts.

I joined and I think you should, too, because representation and advocacy are important to me.  Please join me in maintaining a strong retiree presence.  Please print out, fill out and return this retiree membership form so that upon your retirement, your union membership will automatically roll over into retiree membership:

Jane L. Gilbert
Retired State Employee
