Thinking about


Your association will still be there for you…and remember, if it doesn’t start with IEA – it isn’t us! 

IEA-Retired is your continuing connection to the services, programs, discounts and advocacy efforts of the Illinois Education Association-NEA.  

Here are just a few of the benefits of your membership in IEA-Retired: 

►  IEA-Retired colleagues and friends stay involved by meeting together regularly in local chapters. They conduct great programs, stay active in support of public education, participate in IEA conferences and activities, and engage politically to protect state retirement programs and benefits. 
►  You’ll continue to receive the outstanding discounts and money-saving programs available through NEA Member Benefits and IEA’s Access Saver programs. Saving money is even more important in retirement years. After registering on the site, you will have access to:


NEA Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance *guaranteed for those 45 and over.  $10,000 and $20,000 plans.

►  NEA Educator’s Employment Liability Insurance protection continues. If you intend to substitute teach or take any temporary employment in the public schools during your retirement, this protection is essential and brings great peace of mind. 

►  You’ll receive the IEA-Retired insider electronic newsletter and other IEA-NEA publications. 

►  You’ll be invited to participate in the IEA One Conference. This annual October event, held in Oak Brook, features an outstanding line up of programs, speakers and topical presentations specifically designed for retired teachers, education support professionals and higher education faculty.

IEA-Retired is your way to stay involved and be an advocate for public education, education employees, retired employee pensions and health insurance for retirees. It’s fun and offers great discounts. You can’t afford to be out of the information loop.
