Who We Are
With more than 850 members, the UESF-Retired Division is the fastest growing part of UESF. Any teacher or paraprofessional who was a UESF member in good standing at the time of retirement from the SFUSD may join. Dues are $48 a year for teachers, $24 for paraprofessionals.
The UESF-Retired Division focuses on meeting the needs of retired teachers and paraprofessionals. We monitor the Health Service System and keep a close eye on what’s happening with STRS and with legislation that might affect our members. And we offer a variety of social activities. Our website, www.retireddivision.org is currently being expanded and updated.
The UESF-Retired Division Chair, Gerry Meister can be reached by leaving a message at the UESF office 956-8373 or by email. If you haven’t joined yet, just ask Gerry for an application. Messages for Health Committee Chair Diane Ehrlich also can be left at 956-8373.
