Retired Members

The TSSA Retired Members' Group exists for TSSA members who are now retired and choose to remain as members of the Association by: 

  • Providing support for Association members who are retired and striving to increase their active participation in Union affairs.
  • Campaigning on issues facing Association members, and on matters that have an impact on Retired People. 
  • Raising awareness of Retired People issues within the Association and in society in general.
  • Ensuring the effective representation of the retired Association members.
  • Advising the Association’s Executive Committee on matters relating to issues that concern retired people. 
  • Affiliation to appropriate organisations and working with them on the interests of retired people.  

The RMG is open to all retired Association members who are in receipt of a Company or State Pension, or entitled by qualifying employment to receive a company pension.  


We keep in contact with all those in the Retired Members’ Group through a regular newsletter.

To assist attendance we meet in various towns around the country. We have guest speakers, our meetings are always well attended, and our debates are lively.
