AEA RETIRED
Now, more than ever, the commitment continues.  NEA Retired membership today is more than 300,000 and we continue to lead the way in public education and on critical issues. 

OUR MISSION 

We work with AEA members to:

  • Protect and improve the retirement pension, and health benefits, including Social Security and Medicare.

  • Improve public education through advocacy, mentoring, literacy.

  • Achieve legislative and political action goals for public schools and education employees.

About AEA Retired

Arizona Education Association-Retired is a statewide local affiliate of AEA.

We hold a seat on the AEA Board of Directors.

We have seven local chapters and over 2100 members throughout the state of Arizona. I hope to see you soon at one of the many local or statewide meetings.

You and I joined AEA because we knew the value of collective impact in helping us to create the best learning environments for Arizona students.

When you retired, you did not leave that work behind. Come find out how AEA-Retired can help you to continue

to support the work of ensuring a quality education for each student in Arizona. 

 

Throughout our careers, we paid a high price to ensure that we'd have a strong pension to last us through our retired years. Now, we need to continue our membership and support for our professional organization in order to protect our pensions. 

 

I look forward to talking with you soon, or seeing you at a local or statewide meeting. 

See you there!
