About the JJC Annuitants Association

The organization was chartered in June, 1995.

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 280.

JJCAA logoMembership 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

Jerry Lewis has served as President since 2005 and succeeds John Corradetti, the founding President of the group.

Jerry Lewis

Happy New Year! I sincerely hope 2015 is off to a positive beginning. I wish you a very happy, healthy, and prosperous 2015. This will be a momentous year for SUAA and JJCAA. We anxiously await the decision of the Illinois Supreme Court regarding pension reform. I will address this further in this newsletter.

A slate of JJCAA officers and board members will be presented to the membership for approval at the JJCAA Annual Meeting on July 16th at 8:30 a.m. in T-1000 on the JJC main campus. The JJCAA Constitution and By-Laws will also be presented for approval at the July 16th meeting. Please save that date. Everything concerning pension reform is currently in the hands of the Illinois Supreme Court. Therefore, I have decided to give you a chronological review of all that has transpired regarding pension reform.
