More Mass Retirees Discount Programs In The Works

MAY 2015 VOICE: For those members with insurance needs outside of Massachusetts, the Association is now in the process of establishing a similar discount program with national insurance providers.

In addition, BJ’s will once again offer an exclusive membership discount to Mass Retirees members this coming June-July. Please note, this benefit is not available in BJ’s retail locations! Association members will be mailed an application form when they become available in June, which MUST BE MAILED to the address provided on the form. Forms cannot be returned to BJ’s retail locations.

The Association is also in negotiations with additional vendors, with the hope of offering additional benefits soon.

“Our first order of business is to make sure we offer quality auto and homeowner insurance options for members living outside of Massachusetts. As is the case with any benefit of this type, it will never be one size fits all. What appeals to one member may not to another,” further states Valeri. “Our idea is to simply provide members with options that might save them money on services that they already purchase.”

Members have expressed interest in cell phone services and pet insurance, along with additional dental and vision insurance among others.

Don’t forget! We’ll announce further programs once we’re comfortable with the vetting process.
