Retiree Committee

As an SEIU Local 668 retired member, we encourage you to stay with us!  Although you are retired, the struggle continues! There is proposed legislation at both the state and federal level to erode our pensions and benefits that we fought so hard to gain.  The SEIU 668 Retiree Committee is fighting hard to retain pensions, health care, social security, and Medicare benefits.  We need your help!  We need every SEIU 668 retired member to stay active and continue fighting for our livelihood. Print, fill out and mail in the following retiree application, or contact headquarters to request an application at 1-800-932-0368.  Dues for retired members are only $4 per month!
