Become a Member


Anyone who participates in the State Universities Retirement System (SURS) is eligible to join the NIU Annuitants Association (NIUAA). This includes both current employees and retirees. Their spouses/partners and survivors are also eligible to join and are encouraged to do so.


The cost for an annual membership in the NIU Annuitants Association is $42, or $84 for you and your spouse/partner. SUAA retains $39 and the NIU chapter receives $3 per annual membership.

Dues can be paid in one lump sum. Retirees can elect to have increments automatically taken out of their monthly pension benefit ($3.50 per person). Employees can elect to have increments taken out through payroll deduction ($1.75 semi-monthly per person) and not have to worry about renewing annually.
