The Minnesota Retired State Employees Association (MRSEA) was formed in the late 1940's, and has been serving retired Minnesota state employees ever since.

We are the only organization made up of and concerned solely with retired state employees and their benefits. The Association is managed by a 15 member board of directors elected by members. We respond to needs and concerns of members. This is accomplished with newsletters, by testifying at legislative hearings, and by informing legislators and other elected officials of our concerns. Statewide general membership meetings are held each Spring and Fall. Our thousands of members are not only from the group normally thought of as state employees, but we also come from such diverse groups as retired state legislators, judges, highway patrol and retired employees from the University of Minnesota, metropolitan agencies and others.


We appreciate your patience as we are in the process of redesigning our website.
