Retired Membership

Teaching isn’t just a job. It’s a life.

Welcome to membership in the NEA/UEA Retired program. As a UEA-Retired member, you maintain all of the UEA and NEA member benefits you enjoyed as an active member, plus some additional benefits designed specifically for retired members.

Retired Membership is available to former members no longer employed, at least forty-five years of age, who were employed for at least five years in a position qualifying for active membership.
