Do you know an NJEA member who is retired or about to retire? The move to retirement can be an exciting time, but it’s even better when the New Jersey Retirees’ Education Association (NJREA) has your back.
NJREA is a diverse, vibrant organization that helps retirees transition to an exciting time in their lives. From social events and activities to information and resources and money-saving opportunities and travel discounts, NJREA membership is an essential tool to make the most from retirement.
When you join NJREA, you belong to one of the largest retired public school employee organizations in the nation as well as maintain your membership with NJEA, NEA-Retired, and your County Retired EA (this can be in the county in which you worked or in which you reside, or you can pay to join both).
In addition, you will receive the award-winning NJREA Newsletter, a quarterly publication that keeps you informed about your pension, medical benefits and more. You will also receive the NJEA Review, which has a section on retiree issues every month, and all NEA retiree publications. In addition, njea.org/njrea has a vast array of resources, but you must be a member to log in.
You will receive assistance from NJEA professional staff on pension and medical benefits questions, in addition to assistance on all retirement concerns. This service is only available to dues-paying NJREA members.
Members also receive:
• Personal Legal Services – free consultation and 30% discount on services.
• Buyer’s Edge, Inc. – guaranteed best prices negotiated on your behalf on major purchases.
• NEA Members Insurance Trust – term life insurance.
• Association-sponsored auto and home insurance.
• NJEA Member Discount Program.
• ACCESS discounts – more than 315, 000 discounts.
• Lowest prices on eyewear.
• NJEA travel discounts.
• NEA financial programs.
NJREA Member Benefits also apply to the immediate family of an NJREA member, which means that you get even more value out of your membership.
NJREA dues varies by county, as each county association sets its rate; however, the average annual dues for a professional is $100 or less.
