What is the UCF Retirement Association?

The UCF Retirement Association (UCFRA) was established as a non-profit organization in 1989 through the efforts of recently retired personnel and the Human Resources Office, along with the support of Presidents Trevor Colbourn and Steven Altman. The Association was established to promote the general welfare of retirees and the campus community. The Constitution and By-laws of the Association were originally adopted on September 29, 1989.

The Association has two representatives on the UCF Benefits Committee – one representating faculty and one representing staff – to monitor proposed changes that may affect retirees.
