Your Association Is Ready To Help
The Montana Retired Educators Association is an association of retired educators whose purpose is to promote the professional, social and economic welfare of all retired school employees. MREA members connect to fellow educators at the national, state and local levels. Once you are an MREA member at the state level, you are encouraged to join your local MREA unit as well as NRTA: AARP's Educator Community.
Many local units have adopted the motto of Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, founder of NRTA and AARP, "To serve, not to be served."
MREA state and local units work to promote and honor continued involvement of school retirees in community service and leadership roles in their local communities. Currently, there are about 800 retirees in 10 units across Montana with an expansion program in place.
We're the organization guarding your retirement income from legislative changes that could reduce your pension. We've been fighting for years, and this is no time to stop. Pensions could be questioned here and all over the country at any time.
Together, we can defend pensions. MREA works tirelessly in the Montana legislature to protect your future pension benefits. An experienced lobbyist, paid by MREA, provides legislative representation, proposes legislation, obtains sponsors and testifies on behalf of MREA members at legislative committee meetings.
When you retire, you often lose benefits such as dental, vision, and other insurance. Your state benefits, and even Medicare, might not cover you in these areas. In fact, there's no out-of-pocket maximum.
The good news? Your membership gives you access to a wide range of quality insurance plans. As a member, you'll enjoy access to policies designed to protect your medical and financial well-being--everything from life insurance to Medicare supplement plans. And, thanks to our strength in numbers, you can enroll in the coverage you need at discounted group rates.
Looking forward to meeting others and socializing again? Join MREA now and be ready for future opportunities like nights out with friends old and new, group travel, volunteering, and more. And that's just the beginning. You'll be invited to meetings and other events that will keep you connected to like-minded people.
Research shows that social connection is critical to our mental, physical and emotional health. That's reason alone to join. Become a member today and be among friends.
Membership in MREA also includes access to news updates, MREA events, chapter organizations, and the ability to talk to a live person about your membership benefits or any of MREA's activities.
With so many advantages to membership, at such a reasonable cost, it’s time to join your association.
