What is PARA?


PARA is the Port Authority Retirees Association.  Membership in PARA is open to all retirees and active employees of The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and of its predecessor, The Port of New York Authority, including PATH.




Our mission is to serve PA retirees and to promote their welfare.  We do this by keeping them informed on matters that affect them and by engaging in other activities to further their interests.  We foster and encourage legislation that maintains or improves our circumstances primarily as it affects the pensions of the New York State Retirement System and our health benefits.


Remembrance Through Renewal (RTR) Program

This September marks the tenth annual Remembrance Through Renewal (RTR) Program. RTR encompasses both a Month of Service (MoS) and The Pillars of the Port Authority Award. MoS provides employees with the opportunity to remember and honor the lives lost in the World Trade Center by volunteering in service events throughout the Port District during the month of September. The Pillars award is an employee-driven nomination process created to honor our lost colleagues by recognizing employees who embody some of the qualities that made them such valuable members of the Port Authority community.

Note: Each page of the website will have a Menu Bar that will always be at the top of every page and have pull-down choices so you can more easily navigate to a web page.  This Menu Bar has a main menu across the top and each button has as many sub-menu's to take you to just about every page in the website.  As you scroll up or down the menu will always try to find the top of your browser window.  I will keep a text only menu in very small print on the bottom of every page.  If you pass your cursor over any word and it becomes larger and italicized that means there is a link attached to that word, note: I usually use yellow, green, blue or the default gold for links, just click on the word and you will go to the linked page.  A little tech talk for the advanced - there are well over 8,500 Hyperlinks embedded in this website that will connect you to over 1,500 external links.  If you can't find something of interest for you while surfing this website then send me link to what you would like me to add.......Webmaster
