About the NRLN Utah Chapter
Regional Vice President
Regional Grassroots Director
The NRLN Utah Chapter was established in 2011 when the Association of US West Retirees (AUSWR) closed for business. It was determined by the regional officers that all that could be done by the courts for its retirees had been done. However, with the continued efforts by our former companies and Congress to change the agreements we made with our employers in accordance with ERISA Laws, there was more yet to be done. It was recommended that we continue this effort for retirees and seniors by becoming members and supporting financially the National Retiree Legislative Network (NRLN)

Message for CenturyLink Pre-1991 Retirees
from Judy Stenberg
Be careful Pre-1991 Retirees
I have heard that you have received your healthcare packet for 2020. I have not seen it, because I retired after 1991. I have heard that CenturyLink has another UnitedHealthcare Plan for you next year (2020). I have been told it says if you choose to move from the CenturyLink Pre-1991 Plan to the UnitedHealthcare plan you only have six (6) months to go back to the CenturyLink Pre-1991 Plan. So, the question you need to ask is “if I don’t go back to the CenturyLink Plan in six (6) months does that mean that the company says I am voluntarily leaving the Pre-1991 Plan and can never return to it?”
Again, I have not read the current information you have received. I just want you to be sure that you are making the right decision for your health care.
