All currently retired or soon-to-be-retired University of Minnesota employees and their spouses or significant others are eligible to join UMRA.

New Members

Retirees joining UMRA for the first time get a year of membership free. Annual dues thereafter are $30 for individual membership or $40 for a couple.

To Join: Register online.  You will add your name and profile to our membership database.  As a member you will receive notices about important events or volunteering opportunities.  You will use this account to make meal reservations, and renew membership.  You can also elect to receive our newsletter.

Paper Option:  If you prefer to submit a hardcopy application, download and print the pdf registration form at Join Form for New Members,  and submit it by mail.  (Note:  this can take over a month to process):  Paying online saves us a lot of work!
