April 2024 Pre-Retirement Workshops:

UUP’s popular monthly Pre-Retirement Workshops are scheduled April 16th and April 18th, 2024. The part 1 workshop will take place on Tuesday, April 16, 2024, at 12:00pm which will cover Healthcare/Medicare.

The part 2 workshop will take place on Thursday, April 18, 2024, at 12:00pm which will cover union benefits (dental & vision)

You may take these workshops as many times as you like as the information is rather complex especially with Medicare and feel free to have your spouse/partner attend with you.  Also, you can take these two workshops in any order as they don’t depend on each other. For this and other UUP programing information go to the UUP Events Calendar  https://uupinfo.org/calendar/

You will need to register for the workshops and a Zoom link is sent the day before the workshop to the email address that you register under.

We do not record these workshops because of privacy concerns and because the information does change, and we want to make sure you have the most current information.
