The New Jersey Retirees' Education Association (NJREA) is dedicated to improving the quality of life for retired educational personnel by providing interesting and informational programs and social situations for NJREA members; by working with NJEA & NEA organizing for the common good, to pass beneficial state and federal legislation, and get friends of the educational community elected; by providing a wide variety of member services; and by keeping members informed about health insurance and pensions.
