What is ARENU?
The Association of Retirees of Eversource and Northeast Utilities is a group of individuals who have either retired from the Eversource/NU system or former employees receiving an Eversource/NU pension.

What’s ARENU’s Purpose?
ARENU’s purpose is to encourage good fellowship among its members, to promote recreational and social activities, and other worthwhile projects of interest to its members. In 1988 a group of retired NU system employees formed ARENU to establish and maintain broad, two-way communications between retirees and NU management.

ARENU maintains and monitors telephone numbers which may be called at any time:
Local: 860-665-3067

Who Belongs to ARENU?
Of approximately 7,500 NU retirees and surviving spouses, more than 3400 are members of ARENU. ARENU maintains chapters in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and a satellite in Florida.
