If you’ve retired from Consumers Energy or CMS Energy, this is the place for you.

Welcome Consumers Energy and CMS Energy retirees! We created this site for you, with useful information about benefits and programs designed for you to get the most out of your retirement. You’ll find news about fellow retirees, ways you can make a difference by volunteering in your community and information on programs such as the Forerunners.

Learn more about the upcoming changes to the supplemental Medicare retiree healthcare plan.


The Forerunners

This dynamic organization represents the interests of all retirees by providing fellowship, support, information and resources. We offer scholarships to graduating high school seniors who are grandchildren or step-grandchildren of fully active, dues-paying members of the Forerunners. If you’re up for a bit of socializing, you might enjoy our annual golf outing and reunion gathering. You may want to check out the discounts on products and services, too.
