The UAW Retired Workers Department coordinates the largest and most progressive program for retired workers in the union movement. The department assists local unions in setting up retiree chapters and sets up Area Councils to serve UAW retirees who have moved to communities without UAW locals. The department helps retired members with a wide range of health insurance, Social Security, Medicare, legal, pension, and related problems.
UAW retirees play a vital role in our union’s political and legislative activities.
