Membership in UMRA is open to all retirees of the University and their spouse/partner. There are two membership categories: Member and Associate Member. The differences between the two categories are as follows:
1. Members pay a fee ($15 annual or $100 lifetime) which supports the operations of the Association; Associate Members do not pay a fee.
2. Only Members can participate in the governance of the Association, e.g., voting in elections and serving as voting members of the Executive Committee.
3. Members can receive in-home computer support services provided by graduate students in Computer Science.
4. Members can take advantage of other benefits as they become available, such as U of M Bookstore discount coupons.
5. Lifetime Members of UMRA who are retirees and who are ineligible for a U of M Retired Staff card may be eligible to be granted Associate Retiree status by the University, and to enjoy benefits such as use of Library services, an email account, and Recreational Services membership at a reduced rate.
If you wish to join UMRA you can print your own Application for New Membership form.
