Your Association Is Ready To Help
If you work for the state, you know how important teachers are to the citizens of Connecticut—and you need a membership association that understands, too. The Association of Retired Teachers of Connecticut (ARTC) is that association.
- We promote unity with our over 6,000 members/affiliate members, including 13 local affiliate organizations.
- We are dedicated to promoting the economic, professional and social well-being of our state’s retired teachers.
- We are an advocate for the rights of retired teachers at the Capitol, focused on making sure retired teachers are aware of proposed changes to their income tax, pension and health insurance benefits through email and newsletters.
- We are committed to cooperation with other organizations to address our common concerns
We're the organization guarding your retirement income from legislative changes that could reduce your pension. We've been fighting for years, and this is no time to stop. Defined Benefit pension plans have been questioned here and all over the country.
Together, we can defend your pension. ARTC works tirelessly in the Connecticut legislature to protect your future pension benefits. An experienced lobbyist, paid by ARTC, ARTC provides legislative representation, proposes legislation, obtains sponsors and testifies on behalf of ARTC members at legislative committee meetings, something state agencies cannot do!
Though ERS provides options to Connecticut Retired Teachers for Dental and Vision coverage, ARTC additionally offers these options to give members a choice when exploring group coverage. Finding the right coverage should be simple, especially when dental and vision costs are so expensive.
The good news? Your membership gives you access to a wide range of quality insurance plans. As a member, you'll enjoy access to policies designed to protect your medical and financial well-being--everything from life insurance to long-term care plans. And, thanks to our strength in numbers, you can enroll in the coverage you need at discounted group rates.
Looking forward to meeting others and socializing again? Join ARTC now and be ready for future opportunities like nights out with friends old and new, group travel, volunteering, and more. And that's just the beginning. You'll be invited to meetings and other events that will keep you connected to like-minded people.
Research shows that social connection is critical to our mental, physical and emotional health. That's reason alone to join. Become a member today and be among friends.
