Retirees & Pre-Retirees

Choosing to retire is a major step in your life. Our goal is to make the benefits portion of your transition easier to manage.

Stay Connected - Make A Difference

New retirees are often asked, “How do you like retirement?” And most of us say, or at least think, “Well, I really don’t miss the long hours and the stress, but do miss the social interactions and the people.”
Good news! RFSA is here to provide social interaction and social connections for you.

Standing Committees

Participating in committees provides enjoyable social interaction and is a great way to be of service. Would you like to serve on any of the RFSA Committees? Here is a brief description of the duties of each committee.
