Event description

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, our organization maintains a constant watch 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.

Please join us for our 13th Annual Retired Issues Conference! Whether you are retired or considering retirement in the next several years, you will benefit by attending.

Registration cost is $100.00 (Thursday evening reception, Friday breakfast and Friday lunch are included as part of your registration).
