About JOLIET JUNIOR COLLEGE ANNUITANTS


The  Joliet Junior College Annuitants Association (JJCAA) is a chapter of the State Universities Annuitants Association (SUAA).  The organization was founded to promote and protect the individual and collective interests and welfare of the JJC annuitants and their survivors by being politically proactive.  Service to Joliet Junior College and the district is also promoted.  JJCAA provides social events for its members and also promotes discussion and participation with other annuitant organizations in the State of Illinois.


The organization started with 68 members in 1994.  Membership now exceeds 300. Membership is open to all employees and retirees of JJC who are eligible for SURS benefits, or are receiving SURS benefits.  Surviving dependents who are eligible for SURS benefits and employees who are on disability and receiving SURS benefits are also eligible to join. Membership in JJCAA also includes membership in SUAA.

President's Message - Pat Asher

Hello Fellow JJCAA Members,

The Winter newsletter is dedicated to John Corradetti who passed away on November 24, 2019. John was the first President of JJCAA and served the Association with effort, dignity, and pride.
One issue that remains a challenge is increasing membership in our organization, which is a chapter member of SUAA (State Universities Annuitants’ Association). During this past year, membership in SUAA has dropped by some 300 members. Part of this is due to our aging population. Thus, it is clear that chapters like JJCAA need to increase membership primarily with current employees! In fact, I have asked each officer and delegate to create two strategies for next year to increase membership.
