Now, more than ever...the commitment continues!
What is NSEA-Retired?
The NSEA-Retired is a statewide association of educators that is committed to protecting current pension and Social Security benefits; being a strong advocate on retirement issues; and to the advancement of quality public education.
NSEA-Retired is the ONLY retired association that guarantees continuation of your NEA Member Benefits and NSEA-Retired services.
Members conduct business at an annual conference. Each spring the membership elects officers, district board members and delegates to the NSEA Delegate Assembly and the NEA Representative Assembly.
Why should I join?
As an NSEA-Retired member, you will be kept abreast of new developments on important retirement issues such as pension plans, Social Security, health care and prescription drugs as well as trends in the education profession. You are able to continue your NEA Member Benefit Programs, support your colleagues, public education and Nebraska's children.
Who can join?
Active NSEA members may join as Pre-Retired Lifetime members while still teaching.
Retired educators may join as Lifetime members or Annual members if they are at least 50 and were an Active member in the Association the year they retired.

Beginning in 1983, shortly after NEA formed a retired organization, Nebraska leaders initiated steps to form the NSEA-Retired affiliate.
NSEA-Retired began in 1986 with Val Pullen as its first president. Since then, NSEA-Retired has grown into a nationally recognized association.
