NEA-Retired Life Members who retired in any state and now live in Polk County, Florida are invited to enroll and participate in Polk Education Association-Retired.
In order to maintain your NEA insurance you must become a member of FEA-Retired, which is included with your PEA-Retired membership, or be a NEA-Retired Life Member.
BECOME A PRE-RETIRED SUBSCRIBER TO FEA/NEA-RETIRED
WHY BECOME A PRE-RETIRED SUBSCRIBER?
Signifies your commitment to stay involved in education after you retire from the schoolhouse.
Locks in your FEA/NEA Retired membership at 2022 rate which will never increase for you.
Guarantees the continuation of any NEA insurance and/or loans.
By enrolling now, you forego any future increase in FEA/NEA Retired dues. Saves you money in retirement because you are a paid up FEA/NEA Retired member once you do retire. Your one-time enrollment fee covers your membership for life. Upon your retirement you will be obligated to ONLY pay the dues of the retired local of which you become a member. Currently PEAR members who are enrolled as FEA/NEA Lifetime members pay annual dues of $12.00 as opposed to PEAR annual members who pay FEA/NEA dues plus local dues of $12.00 (annual dues are subject to change every year). If you move, your membership goes with you to your new location!
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE AT WHICH I COULD RETIRE AS A LIFETIME MEMBER?
You can take advantage of your paid up FEA/NEA Lifetime members ship any time after you reach the age of 45 years!
WHAT IS THE CURRENT ENROLLMENT FEE?
Your one-time enrollment fee now would be $280 for ESP’S or $400 for teachers. That’s it forever regardless of any increase in FEA/NEA dues in the future.
