The Retiree Education & Training Assistance Plan (RETAP) feature of tuition assistance allows attendance in active employee tuition assistance classes held on-site at any plant, local union hall, or other approved local program delivery sites. (up to $2,000 annually)

If both the Ford facility and the local union hall are closed and there are no other UAW or Ford locations within 50 miles, retirees may attend college credit classes at a college or university approved by the National Programs Center.
