W H E T H E R Y O U A R E retiring in a few weeks or years from now, there are reasons you'll want to continue your membership in CTA and NEA. CTA/NEA-Retired is the active and robust branch of CTA/NEA that belongs to our retired educators. As a retired member you continue to stay connected, be protected and enjoy the benefits you had as a CTA/NEA Active member. Retired members offer invaluable perspectives and institutional knowledge. They provide a strong voice for education retirees in California and the nation, promoting the interests of retirees by working to set policy that will affect current educators into the future. We represent retirees on CTA's State Council of Education and nationally on the NEA Board of Directors and at the Representative Assembly.
