PARA exists today because of dedicated volunteers, helping the greater retiree community access accurate information about their benefits. These benefits are provided by many entities, including but not limited to: the Port Authority, the New York State Retirement System, the Social Security Administration, Medicare, and the Railroad Retirement Administration.
PARA collaborates with the Port Authority’s Human Resources Department to communicate and clarify retiree benefits programs and policies for PARA members. We do this in many practical ways:
The Port Authority Retirees Association, Inc. (PARA) provides a unified voice for Port Authority and PATH retirees to promote their welfare and to advocate for their benefits. You’ll be joining PARA’s some 4,000 members residing in 39 states and 12 countries. PARA maintains an active affiliation with the Retired Public Employees Association (RPEA) and the Alliance of Public Retiree Organizations (APRO) representing some 500,000 retirees and beneficiaries in the New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS).
