The NALC has a Retirement Department that serves the members, active and retired, with advice and assistance regarding pre-retirement and post-retirement issues. These issues primarily involve the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and its administration of the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees’ Retirement System (FERS). But the issues also at times intersect with other agencies and programs, including the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), Medicare, Social Security, Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance (FEGLI) and Federal Employees’ Health Benefits (FEHB).

2023 NALC Br.294 Annual Retiree Brunch

As with every year we honor our Union Brothers and Sister that are now retired with our annual brunch at the Douglaston Manor. We also welcome to the alumni those that have retired over this passed year as well. So keep an eye out for a letter from our Union Office and please answer it promptly on whether or not you will be attending this October on the 22th which is a Sunday. We hope that you can all attend in the celebration.

Seek a Financial Advisor

As we all know in life it can have it's challenges with it's ups and downs. The most important decision you will make in life is retirement. We may think we know all the answers but do we? Planning on ahead is the key but there is additional help to make sure you are financially safe and secure for the years to come.
