Our members can continue to enjoy the benefits of membership at a reduced subscription rate as an associate and retired member. PCS associate and retired membership (ARMs) offers a voice, services, and information for members of the union who have retired or moved on to a role where we do not operate.
If you are a PCS member nearing retirement or about to leave, our advice would be to stay in your union and do not allow yourself to be isolated and unable to be part of a strong collective voice on the issues that affect and matter to you. You can find out more information about joining ARMs Northern on the PCS ARMS website or by contacting the ARMS regional secretary via email email@example.com or by ringing 01915369980
You can also find out more about ARMs, read the newsletter “Up in ARMs” and view the latest news on the ARMs national webpages.
The range of membership services which PCS provides for ARMs members includes:
- Legal assistance and advice
- Free will service
- Professional advice service
- Financial services
- Helplines for legal, medical, debt, domestic violence, and breast cancer advice
- Holiday and travel club
- Shopping discounts
- Copies of the ARMs newsletter
- Assistance through the PCS benevolent fund.
It should be noted, however, that death benefit is not available to ARMS members.
