Welcome from the President

Welcome to Retirement!

There is a world after working in public schools! By being a part of TSTA-Retired/NEA-Retired, you continue to support your professional organizations and join a group of retirees that are working to safeguard the Texas Teacher Retirement System. Our annuities and health insurance need to be increased and improved. TSTA-Retired/NEA-Retired are working at the national level to repeal the Social Security Windfall/Offset Provisions that relate directly to our retirement benefits. We work with TSTA/NEA. What is good for us should be good for our active members still in the everyday school routine. We are advocates for the students, public education and our active members. We are working to protect and improve the welfare of our retired members.

TSTA-Retired is the only Texas retired educational organization that is affiliated with NEA. We are the fastest growing group in the 3.2 million family of NEA members. Membership gives you the opportunity to participate, vote, and hold office when you retire. Continuing membership keeps you informed on retired and public educational issues through TSTA/NEA and TSTA-Retired/NEA-Retired publications. TSTA/NEA Member Benefits including liability insurance, long-term care insurance and Medicare supplement insurance and credit programs will continue to be there for you.

You need to continue to be a part of the TSTA/NEA team and join TSTA-Retired/NEA-Retired.

Sincerely,

Louise Watkins, President TSTA-Retired
