Are you dreaming of the day when golf, tennis and traveling fill your days with pleasure?

For some of you that day may be closer on the horizon than you might think or plan for. But, it's never too early to start planning for your retirement.

"If you are thinking about retiring, think about AEA-Retired," says Julie Horwin, AEA-Retired President, "Through AEA-Retired, you can stay involved in the Association, remain informed about education issues and keep the benefits you've earned."

Since its inception, AEA Retired members have been involved in a number of activities, including monitoring the Arizona State Retirement System and Investment Advisory Council decisions, lobbying the legislature to improve and protect retirement benefits, participating in the AEA Delegate Assembly and NEA Representative Assembly governance activities and supporting public education.


Am I allowed to join only AEA-Retired, and not NEA?

No, your low yearly membership of only $90 enrolls you in NEA, AEA, and AEA-Retired. You will receive all of the NEA and AEA print publications, plus the AEA-Retired The Conduit. Plus you will be able to keep all of the insurance that you have had for so many years.

I believe that I am already a member and need information about when to pay my dues?

We would love to help you. We want to protect every penny of your retirement pension, and have many ways of squeezing the most out of our retirement dollars! Contact our membership chair to find out the answers to questions such as, are you already a member? Are you an NEA Lifetime Member? How do I rejoin if I let my membership lapse? Can I keep my insurance if I don't join? For more information, call Shirley Boswell, our Membership Chair, 602-696-2458 or Julie Horwin, AEA-Retired President, (602) 574-1473

Do you have an online E-Newsletter I can get so that I can keep up with AEA and AEA-Retired?
