Benefits of Joining IRO

Updated 6/9/2017

All communication to our retirees is via email.
To be sure you stay current with timely retiree news, Intel announcements, and event notices, it is important to sign up for membership. Simply request to join by filling in the boxes to the right.

Effective June 9, 2017, Intel Retiree Organization will begin verifying with Intel that IRO applicants retired under an official Intel retirement definition.

  • We are making this process change to align with our charter, given we are a volunteer organization with limited resources.
  • New applicants that didn’t retire under an official Intel retirement definition will not be granted membership.
  • Intel retirement benefits are available to Intel retirees that retired under an official Intel retirement definition.

Within 2 weeks, when you receive your acceptance into IRO, you will also receive an email address for you. As a new registrant, you will be notified of your new address by email sent to your private email address. Here are the FAQs as to why we do this and what benefit it is for you.

If you change email addresses, please make sure you notify us. Send this information to our retiree mailbox.

If you change your postal home address, please notify Intel by following these instructions.

If you decide that you want to remove yourself from our list, please use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of our News Flash emails.

You may also be unsubscribed if your email address becomes inactive; if you opt-out of our mailings or when you (or your email client) flags our mailings as SPAM.
