About Our Website
     Our website is here to provide information and links for active teachers who are preparing for retirement. Preparation for retirement takes thoughtful planning many months ahead so that you do not experience an interruption in your financial security. If you are considering retirement, we have provided links under the "Pre-Retired Teachers" button to information that will assist you in your transition from employment to retirement. 
     As an active teacher planning for retirement, or a retiree who is not yet a member of MEA-R, we also want you to know the benefits of membership. Membership pays! Check out the benefits of membership with this state-wide retired teacher organization that has 16 county affiliates and 1 higher education affiliate. 
     For our current MEA-Retired, we have provided links to information that will help make your retirement years more fulfilling and enjoyable.

Legislative Activity

The bill's work session will take place at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, January 29th in the Education and Cultural Affairs Committee in the Cross Office Building in Augusta. We strongly encourage MEA-Retired members to be there to show their support for the bill by wearing RED.
