About HSTA-Retired and NEA-Retired

By joining HSTA-Retired, you will add your voice to a growing association of more than 6,100 retired teachers who advocate at the state Legislature to retain and improve retirement and health benefits. You can also join the ranks of NEA-Retired, a strong voice for retirees at the national level with more than 300,000 members working to protect and maintain your Social Security benefits and strengthen Medicare.

HSTA-Retired is a volunteer, member-centered organization supported by membership dues and grants from NEA-Retired. Members work to provide fellowship, networking opportunities, community service, and camaraderie. They also conduct pre-retirement seminars to help active members prepare for retirement, and plan social events to keep members informed and build new friendships.
