There are two ways to join:

If you're a new retiree, UCLARA offers a free trial membership. The first year dues will be waived; you'll still have the option to add your spouse/partner for the normal $10. 

For 2020-21 retirees, the trial membership can be activated any time during the first year of retirement. Regardless of start date, the trial period will end  June 30, 2022. 

Trial memberships are not retroactive; retirees must activate them during the first year of eligibility. 

See Member Benefits for reasons to join, and to find out how your dues are used.
