Does your union dues automatically stop at retirement or do you have to complete the forms and stop it prior to your retiremet?  How would you sign up and pay retiree dues?
 
Just curious...
 
Thanks.

Yes, at retirement your union dues stops.  Depending on your union, payment to stay in varies.  Call your national and ask for the retiree department.  Usually, you can be an aux member for a lesser rate, or continue to pay regular union dues to be a voting member.  The national may send you a bill, or you may have to have it taken out of your annuity.  Also, the local portion of your dues is sent directly to your local.  I have no idea which union you are with, but the APWU national is 202-842-4200.  If you can take it out of your annuity, be sure the annuity is finalized before doing such.,

I heard as a retired APWU member the dues are 3 dollars a month and can be taken out of your annuity when finalized. in southern Calif they meet once a month to plan trips and get together's. they try not to talk about the old jobs!!! one only has to pay full dues to be a voting member and get the APWU health plan.

postal -- thanks for the post.  The retiree chapter in Tampa is pretty active.  I will join that just to keep in touch with all that goes on.  Thanks again.

I switched to NALC health insurance this year from Blue Cross.  I think there is an associates dues of $36 per year.  I still pay full APWU dues in retirement so I can be Vice-President and represent the AO's.

Nice to see you even stayed on as an APWU retiree member. That's dedication.
I plan to do the same.
Those APWU meetings sound like a lot of fun.
Planning trips and get together's. Hanging out with fellow APWU members.
Good times.
