New Member: Joining UMRA

All retirees or soon-to-be-retired University of Minnesota employees and/or spouses or significant others, are eligible to join UMRA. You can read more about the benefits on this and other pages.

Retirees joining UMRA for the first time pay only $10 for a single or $15 for a couple membership. Annual dues thereafter are $25 for individual membership or $35 for a couple.

We encourage you to register and pay online: HERE.  We will ask you for your email address, and require you to set a password for your record.  Online access to your records always require a login using your email address and the password you set. WE cannot see your password but If you forget it you will be able to have it reset quickly and easily.

A paper registration form is still available from the chair of the Membership Committee, or you may download and print a pdf copy PDF iconumra_new_application.pdf

Current/Previous Member: Renew

UMRA memberships are annual, and expire on August 31.  We will remind you to renew via email or postal mail, this summer. A paper renewal form is still available from the chair of the Membership Committee, or you may download and print a pdf copy PDF iconumra_renewal_application.pdf

The UMRA member database is entirely online.  You may review and update your record any time, and we recommend you check it out before you renew. The email and password you set previously are fine, but if you don't remember your password you must set a new one.  To set a password, click HERE and enter your email address of record.  You will get a simple email message with a link that lets you choose and set a new password. (Remember, your record consists primarily of contact information, we keep no financial contact information.)

When you have your password, click HERE to log in.  You will see the “Dashboard” with several choices.  We recommend that you start with “Update Your Record.”  Inspect and make any corrections needed.  We hope you will add information requested that will aid in appreciating membership needs. (If you have difficulties with the member form, please do describe then in email to the Webmaster: leegi001@umn.edu.

The final step in renewal is the “Renew Your Membership” option on the Dashboard. Please be sure you have made a choice in each option, and then Pay by Credit Card through PayPal (or from your existing PayPal account)  or Pay by mailing a check to UMRA.  

Special note about PayPal: The first PayPal page you see asks if you want to "Pay with PayPal."  Go to the bottom of that page and select "Pay with Debit or Credit Card."  The next page should offer you "PayPal Guest Checkout."  That's the right thing.  Fill out the form and select "Continue" at the bottom. You are finished and can see the results on the page and in an email sent to you.
