About US - the UNBREA

What we do

Currently the UNBREA is represented on the University’s Fringe Benefits Review Committee, which monitors and makes recommendations for the ongoing operations of the supplementary health plan now offered to retirees. Our own benefits committee considers ways to improve health coverage for retirees. The Association also appoints members to the University’s standing committee on University-retiree relations, which is intended to develop improved relations between the University and retirees. Each year UNBREA organizes a series of talks in Fredericton of interest to members, and sponsors both a Christmas luncheon and a picnic in the park in June to celebrate the beginning of summer. Retirees in the Saint John area organize a Christmas luncheon and occasional outings. The Association publishes a Newsletter four times per year to let members know of upcoming events and other matters of interest, and this Website is maintained for the same purpose. UNBREA continues to assist members with health concerns by seeking to improve accessibility to health plans and other areas of mutual interest.

Full membership is available to all former UNB employees who have retired from regular employment, and their spouses. The membership year runs from September 1st to the following August 31st. Membership dues are $15 per year for a single membership, $25 couple (one UNB retiree) and $30 couple (two UNB retirees). A special membership is available for $5 per year for those retirees who are unable to attend events but wish to receive the Newsletter.

An electronic application form is available by clicking "Membership Application" in the Navigation Box to the right.

We do our best to reflect the interests of our members, and to provide as much service as a group like ours can manage. As always, we welcome your suggestions and advice. Our mailing address is:
