Welcome to CEA-Retired!
The driving principle behind CEA-Retired is to provide retired members an organization that works in conjunction with CEA to improve retirement, pension, and health benefits. CEA-Retired provides its members a forum to continue a commitment to improve public education by working with active members. The organization encourages member participation at the political level by promoting CEA and NEA legislative agendas. CEA-Retired also offers its members opportunities to stay connected through social events and community service initiatives
