On Oct 9, 10, & 11, 2018 (Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday), RCRV will hold our annual seminar on the Collins Retiree Insurance program at

Kirkwood Regional Center of Linn County
1770 Boyson Road
Hiawatha, IA 52233

The briefing will be repeated at 9:00, 12:30 and 3:00 each of the days. We will present the Medicare Insurance program for retirees 65 and older, as well as what is available to Rockwell Collins retirees under the age of 65. We again will have  Via Benefits (formerly Towers Watson One Exchange) representatives available to assist in answering questions that you may have.

You do need to make reservations, as we have space for only 200 people for each session. To make reservations for a specific seminar, sign up online at crshiip.org/reservations”. You will get confirmation of your reservation by return email (unless you enter the wrong email address). This is the preferred way to register.

If you do not have access to a computer, or do not have an email address, you may call 319-804-8801 and leave a message with the desired seminar date and time, and the number of people attending.

You will not receive a return call unless your selected seminar time is no longer available.
