Whether it's by meeting with your lawmakers about issues close to your heart or helping to elect pro-union, pro-retiree lawmakers, the AFGE Retirees program has many opportunities for you to advocate for government workers – active and retired.
“Why am I still involved with AFGE? Because there is still a lot of work to be done to protect the rights of government employees – active and retired. I may be retired but I still have a lot to give to the Union that gave a lot to me.”

“I’m retired but I still believe we’re all in this together. So I’m continuing to fight for government employees – active and retired – and the services we deliver for America every day."
Steve Kofahl, Local 3937, SSA, Retiree
“AFGE needs active retirees. When we stay involved it strengthens AFGE’s political clout on Capitol Hill – and we need that power now more than ever."
