Get expert help

Our members enjoy access to information and research for practical help, and useful information that help to make retirement better.


  • Help your family with our exclusive You and Your Survivors workbook. This invaluable document helps Association members with estate planning and the winding up estates. This book alone is worth the price of membership.

  • Access our professional research staff. We can answer your questions about superannuation acts, health care and dental plans and many issues important to pensioners.

  • Enjoy Sage, our quarterly magazine packed full of informative articles that focus on you and your family at this stage of your life.

 

For over 1,200 of our members, some of the benefits are social:


  • Volunteer for the Association to manage your local branch, work on projects and help advocate on behalf of retirees.

  • Get involved in the Association by attending meetings, seminars and social events in your area. We have more than 80 branches, so there’s one near you!


Protect federal pensions and benefits

The support that you give us is essential; no other organization works exclusively to protect federal employees’ and retirees’ pensions and benefits. 
The threats to pensions and benefits are very real – that’s why we’re depending on you to join us to make sure your voice is heard on these critical issues for federal employees and retirees.

If you're not already retired you don't have to wait. Become a member to start saving and connecting today.

Your Membership Matters.



 WHAT MEMBERS SAY  

 

 I think your provision of the many services is great and the variety is wonderful. I have accessed many.

 
   

 

I believe Federal Retirees keeps its members well informed. It is a well run organization with lots of opportunities to include oneself in the organization. Efficient and caring.
