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. Here is a short video on the benefits of UEA-Retired. 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.
