Welcome to the Auburn University Retiree Association (AURA) website. All retired faculty, staff and administrators of Auburn University and Auburn University at Montgomery are eligible for membership and encouraged to join our organization. I encourage you to navigate to other sections of our website to learn more about us.
AURA works with other university retiree associations and the Alabama Education Retirees Association (AERA) to protect and maintain our retirement and PEEHIP benefits and advocate for costs of living adjustments (COLAS). Our last COLA was provided in 2006.
The AURA Board of Directors believes that close cooperation between AURA and AERA enhances the effectiveness of both organizations. Your Board encourages all AURA members to go the AERA website and, if not already a member, join now so you will receive their monthly newsletter, The AERA Voice!
In addition to advocating for our retirement and health care benefits with the state legislature, we seek to provide social and educational opportunities of interest to our members. Your ideas and suggestions are always welcome. If you would like to volunteer for service on our Board or one of our committees, I encourage you to contact me.
