Individual Benefit Reviews

Benefits in Brief:

The Retiree Division provides Benefit Luncheon Outreach Meetings to the retirees in the five boroughs including Westchester and Long Island.  We provide these meetings twice a year to ensure that retirees who may not be able to make it to our offices in lower Manhattan can still have access to important benefit information, legal assistance and camaraderie with fellow retirees.  Watch the calendar for meeting times and locations in your area.  One meeting per member.  Southern States Benefit Conferences occur once per year and alternate between the locations in Georgia, Florida and North Carolina.
