Improvement of retiree benefits is an important focus for CURAC and its member associations. Awareness of medical and non-medical benefits available to colleagues in universities and colleges across the country can be a useful tool in efforts to maximize what may be achieved in this area. Soon after CURAC was constituted, a Benefits Committee was established to facilitate benefits-related communication between CURAC and its member. Several years ago, a Benefits Network of representatives from member associations was formed to improve these communications and to share information on benefits available to retirees in member associations.
The new CURAC website has a Benefits Network space that is available to Network representatives, for the purpose of sharing with all member associations any changes to their medical and non-medical benefits. Representatives wishing to submit an update are requested to forward the posting in PDF to the Chair of the Benefits Committee (firstname.lastname@example.org )
