Our retired members’ group works closely with other member groups on almost every issue that affects workers in the UK, as well as fighting for quality public services, on which many older people rely.
UNISON retired members have a wealth of experience and knowledge that make them a valuable part of UNISON campaigns.
If you have been a UNISON member for at least two years on the day you retire from employment (in an area of work in which UNISON organises) and are receiving a pension and are not in other paid employment, you can become a retired member. UNISON retired members continue to be entitled to a wide range of benefits including:
- legal advice
- welfare support
- discounts and offers on a wide range of products and services.
