NEW YORK MEMBERS -Important *Power of Attorney Information* If you are unable to act due to a serious health condition, it is extremely important that your spouse, significant other or dependent has access to your completed Power of Attorney form to act on your behalf related to the retirement system.
You should advise the individual designated to contact UPSEU immediately if you become or they believe you may become incapacitated as it will potentially impact pension rights afforded to them.
This would in no way impact any decision if you become capable of acting on your own behalf and for you to reverse any decision made. Again, it is extremely important that your loved ones have access to your executed Power of Attorney. You do not submit to anyone. It is retained with your important papers.

On 12/1/20, UPSEU- Unit 50 in Southington, CT, sponsored their annual Dress Down Day for their local food bank, Bread for Life. The unit raised almost 2,000.00 this year (an all time record) and Liberty Bank will also contribute 25% to their fundraising total to partner with the unit and the Southington Public School District!
The local food bank prepares hot lunch and dinner meals Monday through Saturday, meal delivery for the home bound, a mobile food pantry, Senior Services, snacks for district students and so much more. Their mission is, ”to provide food, fellowship and a sense of dignity to those in need”. The Southington BOE UPSEU unit is honored to contribute to their efforts and together with the SPS District and Liberty Bank, they hope to sponsor another event in the spring to double the effort this year due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Together, we can all make a difference one step at a time!
