The Utah Retired School Employees Association is a non-profit organization chartered in 1944 to organize and establish a body of retired educators that could work together as a coalition to protect and enhance benefits for individuals receiving retirement benefits from the Utah Retirement System - URS.
The Utah Retired School Employees Association is the only membership organization in Utah devoted solely to protecting the interests of retired educators. It continues to promote the professional, social, and economic welfare of all Utah retired educators.
The association’s office is located at 8931 Shady Meadow Drive, Sandy, Utah 84093. There are fourteen local unit associations located throughout the state, each with a local unit president. The association holds two meetings each year: A Leadership Meeting in May and an Annual Meeting in October. The Utah Retired School Employees Association comprises a nine-member Executive Board and an Executive Director, which are all volunteer positions.
The association encourages all retired educators to join. Associate membership is also offered to those who have an interest in education in Utah. Every association member receives four newsletters each year that contain information on current and pending issues of interest and importance to the membership.
Each retired school employee has unique goals and interests, but all are concerned about their retirement and benefits. The collective efforts of the Utah Executive Board and many volunteers have been directed toward the protection and enhancement of retirement and benefits. In conjunction with district and local units, URSEA promotes activities that support the members and their communities by offering social, informational, and service opportunities. Many members of the association also join NRTA, AARP’s Educator Community, and AARP.
Through the years, the Utah Retired School Employees Association members have worked together to create a strong, viable, and professional organization, and the association looks forward to carrying this legacy far into the future.
