Union Retiree Membership

Because retirees’ hands are no longer tied by the Little Hatch Act, they are perfectly suited to get involved in activities from the Statehouse to the White House. Retirees have the experience, the knowledge of public employment and the ability to advocate and focus on the issues that most directly impact them.

OCSEA Retiree Program

OCSEA retirees can become an active OCSEA Retiree Member and get many of the OCSEA benefits by paying an annual fee of $6 per year directly through OCSEA. (including OCSEA Free College, perks, discounts and so much more) An OCSEA Retiree Committee holds luncheons and educates retiree members throughout the year on topics of interest to retirees such as pensions, health care and legislative matters. 

To become an active OCSEA Retiree, download, complete and mail in the OCSEA Retiree Application. Include the $6 annual fee (check) with the mailed application. OR you can email OCSEA Retirees Sign Up or call 800-969-4702, ext. 2605, to get more information and have an application mailed to you.

OCSEA Life Membership

OCSEA Life Members are activists whose retiree membership dues are covered by a subordinate body due to years of union service and activism. Questions regarding OCSEA Life Membership should be addressed with your chapter president or chapter leadership.
