Whether you soon will retire from your career in education or have just recently retired, your experience is valued as a member of GAE-Retired and NEA-Retired, the only state and national organizations officially associated with GAE and NEA respectively. GAE-Retired and NEA-Retired are the places for you to stay involved in education and gain important benefits whether you taught in the classroom or provided critical support services.
We are GAE/NEA members, and we’re concerned about our future. Increasing numbers of American educational employees soon will retire. We are affected by the rising costs of health care, threats to Social Security and Medicare, increasing utility costs, and changes in tax rates and fair housing practices. Membership in a vital, democratic organization is crucial to advancing our concerns and continuing our involvement in the political debates that shape educational and social policy.
The National Education Association is your advocate for the rights of all educational employees, Active and Retired. GAE-Retired and NEA-Retired members are eligible to become active participants in GAE's and NEA’s political and legislative activities.
Your skills as an experienced professional are crucial to ongoing lobbying efforts of both GAE and NEA to protect critical programs such as Social Security and to promote quality public education.
Continuing membership in the GAE-Retired and NEA-Retired organizations keeps you informed and as involved as you decide to be.
