Planning to retire? Your UTU have some answers

Planning to retire? We have some answers
If you are planning to retire in the coming months, you are sure to have concerns and many more questions.

Understanding retirement benefits, Medicare and Medigap and, especially, assuring you obtain all you are entitled to is no simple task. There is help, however, and the UTU can help you.

Many of your pre-retirement questions can be answered at the UTU Internet home page, at www.utu.org by clicking (in the red tile area to the left) on UTU Alumni.

See, for example, the article headlined, Preparing for Your Retirement, which provides advice on tasks to consider in the months before your actual retirement. The topics include, Money and health, Medicare and more, Pension plans, Investment income, Monthly income, information for UTUIA policy holders, and advice on documents you will need to complete or obtain before applying for certain retirement benefits.

Also provided are contact information phone numbers and Web addresses where additional retirement information (such as veterans benefits for surviving spouses) may be obtained.

A new addition to that the Alumni Association page is a link to UnitedHealthcares Retirement Made Easy Kit, crafted for railroaders about to retire.

For Bus Department members, there is a link for Social Security information.

Dont overlook information on joining the UTU Alumni Association, which will keep you in touch with other UTU retirees and continuing news about the UTU, your past employer and current events affecting airlines, the motorcoach industry and railroads.

Those nearing retirement also should click on the Healthcare link in the blue tile area at the left of the UTU homepage at www.utu.org. You will find there additional links to information on health care benefits, disabilities and Medicare prescription drug benefits.

Advance planning is an important first step toward assuring smooth sailing toward a successful and enjoyable retirement.
