Retired Members


Not everything has to grind to a halt when you retire from work. If you’ve been a UNISON member for at least two years immediately prior to your retirement, are receiving a pension and are not in other paid employment, you are eligible to become a retired member.

The only cost is a single payment of £15.00, which gives you retired membership for life. All you need to do is send a cheque for £15.00, together with your name, address and membership number, to the Branch Office. There’s no particular time limit after your retirement.

Retired membership gives you access to help from the Welfare Fund should you need it, keeps you in for the good deals from our affiliates like UIA insurance and LV insurance, and also there is a programme of monthly meetings, with interesting speakers, and trips and outings to all sorts of places, at moderate cost.

UNISON Retired Members

UNISON Eastern Region Retired Members Committee (ERRMC) would like to obtain your permission to add your name and email address to their designated Retired Members email address list.

 This would give a better means of being able to keep you up to date of the work the Committee is doing and to enable them to invite you to various meetings and events such as your Annual General Meeting and the Eastern Region Retired Members Seminar.

Information would be sent to you directly from the committee as opposed to via your local UNISON branch. This would include updates and invites which would reach you quicker allowing them to keep you up to date when the information is relevant.

If you would like to be added to the list please let them know by emailing the below information:

Address & postcode
UNISON Membership Number (if you know it)

Thanks in advance.

 Kind Regards
