In an effort to allow members to access health benefits information that is accurate and efficient, the NJREA Health Benefits Committee is deploying the following communication model. This approach will help the committee better serve NJREA members and allow for more effective communication with the NJEA Research staff.

Should you have any questions regarding your state-paid, post-retirement medical benefits, please direct them to your respective county REA presidents. The presidents and NJREA Health Benefits Committee members (listed below) receive frequent, up-to-date information about retirees’ benefits and are aware of the latest issues and how they are being handled. Should the county REA president not be able to answer your question, he/she will contact the health benefits committee member assigned to your county.
