WTU Retirees Chapter

Washington Teachers’ Union invites retired educators to join its Retiree Chapter and participate in activities with former teacher friends, old and new. WTU’s Retiree Chapter meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month at 10 am at the Howard University School of Divinity located at 1400 Shepard St. NE in Washington, DC. In the event of a delayed school schedule for the Howard University School of Divinity due to inclement weather or other circumstances, Retiree chapter meetings WILL NOT hold.

Retiree members are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities and trips that provide opportunities for fellowship. Members of the WTU Retiree chapter are able to maintain Dental and Vision insurance through the union. Open enrollment for retirees typically occurs November of every year. United Healthcare Dental and Vision Services are the providers for these benefits.

How to Apply
Newly retired teachers who would like to join the Retiree chapter and maintain dental and vision insurance benefits, must enroll during the month of their retirement, and pay a pro-rated cost for coverage.

Retired teachers who are 6 months or more into their retirement must wait to enroll for dental and vision benefits during open enrollment in November. To become a member of WTU’s Retiree Chapter, you will need to complete the application which you can download here.
