In 1989 a group of TRW retirees, primarily from the TRW Space and Electronics Group (TRW Space and Defense Sector), founded an association known as TRW Retirees Association (TRA). The official name of the organization was changed to The Retirees Association in 2003, to reflect the changes when TRW was acquired by Northrop Grumman. TRA membership now includes retirees from the former Space Technology and Mission Systems Sectors as well as heritage TRW retirees.

TRA membership is open to all TRW and Northrop Grumman Aerospace Sector retirees. New members can join for $10. That covers your membership for the remainder of the current calendar year and the next year. After that, membership is $10 per year. Membership applications and renewal forms will be found on the Membership page of this website.

The Association is governed by elected officers and a Board of Directors.
