Be Protected

Be protected

CTA/NEA-Retired devotes 100% of its time and resources to serving the combined interests of retired teachers, educators, college and university professors and education support professionals. In conjunction with CTA and NEA, CTA/NEA-Retired maintains a constant vigil on federal legislation that may affect retirement benefits.  This includes working to repeal the unfair Social Security Government Pension Offset (GPO) and Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP), opposing efforts to privatize Social Security and working to strengthen Medicare.

In addition, CTA/NEA-Retired chapters help their members be protected with a variety of risk management and asset protection benefits available with membership.

• Life Insurance - must be participating in this program at the time of retirement to continue a portion of your current coverage. For information on all exclusions, limitations or reductions go to https://www.ctamemberbenefits.org/beprotected.
• Discounts on Automobile and Homeowner’s Insurance
• Credit Union Services
• 1 Million Dollar Professional Liability Insurance - for members who decide to substitute after retiring.
• Disaster Relief Assistance (administered by the FACT Foundation) - provides financial assistance to members who have significant losses due to natural disasters in California.
• Appointments with Vision Services Plan (VSP) doctors to receive frames, lenses and more, all at in-network prices.
• CTA Group Legal Services (GLS) - retired members are eligible for a one- hour free legal consultation concerning retirement benefits, health and welfare benefits or substitute employment. Additionally, they are eligible for one 30-minute free consultation (no more than once a year) with a GLS attorney on other matters.
