Your Retirement Advocate Since 1973

We are ARSCEAssociation of Retired Seattle City Employees! 

Our pensions are critical. ARSCE actively monitors the City’s pension system to make sure our pensions remain strong and secure. We keep an eye on City, state and federal legislative proposals that could affect our pension benefits. We are engaged and keep our members informed.

We publish ARSCE News six times a year, keeping members up-to-date on retiree matters. We also sponsor three general meeting luncheons and a holiday party each year, giving important opportunities to stay in touch with other retirees. Join us!
