SUAA provides a communication network to members through newsletters, legislative bulletins, websites, workshops and meetings that inform and update on both local and state issues relative to pension and health care benefits. We assist in building a knowledge base to help you better understand how legislation can affect those benefits.
Membership allows direct involvement in the legislative process through coordination of a clear voice and visibility as a solid advocacy organization that protects pension and health care benefits of those enrolled in the State Universities Retirement System (SURS). Our membership numbers demonstrate to the public sector, legislators and other policy makers that we are a united organization serious about protecting benefits.
The SUAA also offers assistance to spouses and survivors by making sure they receive accurate information allowing them access to all benefits and services to which they are entitled.
SUAA membership affords the opportunity to interact and build relationships with other members of SURS through the local campus chapter. Chapter activities include seminars on timely topics, regular communications, and calls to action.
