Why I Joined OEA-Retired

Being involved in OEA-Retired has allowed me to be an insured substitute, reap the rewards of NEA Member Benefits, renew friendships made as an OEA member, and make many new friends.
— Janet Jackson


I was very involved in OEA as a classroom teacher. Once retired I wanted to continue working for education issues. OEA-Retired is a way for me to stay involved.
— Carolyn Vandiver

I joined OEA-Retired because I wanted to be informed about education and retired issues. A bonus has been the friendships that I have developed.

— Kathryn Warrior


The Oregon Education Association-Retired (OEA-Retired) is the NEA affiliate for retired OEA members. OEA-Retired provides OEA retirees an opportunity to collectively work toward preserving PERS benefits, enhancing health care, and assuring the strength of public education.
