Portland Metro Area Educators – Retired: Active Voice, Active Life
PMAE-Retired would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your well-deserved retirement. You worked hard for this. Your union worked hard for this. We, the members of PMAE-Retired, can attest to the fact that retirement can indeed be very nice. But as you plan for your retirement, we would like you to consider the following;
Are you worried that Salem will change your PERS retirement benefits? They have tried to change the benefits of those who have already retired in the past, and failed. Would you like to be part of an organization that fights to protect the benefits that you have earned?
Are you planning on retiring early? Would you like to be part of an organization that has a seat on PAT’s Executive Board and will fight to maintain your retirement contractual rights?
Are you planning on substituting after retirement? Would you like to be part of an organization that provides interesting/informative activities that will allow you to earn PDUs?
Are you planning to help elect pro-education candidates after retirement? Would you like to be part of an organization that continues to donate to and endorse pro-education candidates through the OEA-PAC?
Are you planning on continuing to help our students have the basics needed to succeed in school? Would you like to be part of an organization that regularly donates money to the OEA-Foundation?
Are you planning on keeping in contact with your union brothers and sisters after you retire? Would you like to be part of an organization that regularly schedules breakfasts, lunches, and activities such as tours, museums, nature walks, etc. throughout the Portland Metro area and beyond?
To become a member of PMAE-Retired (only $10 a year), you also have to be a member of OEA and NEA or OEA-Retired and NEA-Retired. For less than the cost of one month of coverage through PAT you can be a Lifetime member of OEA-Retired and NEA-Retired. As a gift to you, PAT will pay for your first year of PMAE-Retired membership!
