Our website is here for active and retired public education professionals who are members of the Maine Education Association, and for non-member retirees who want information about MEA-Retired and membership.
For active MEA members, our site provides links to retirement preparation information. Preparation for retirement takes thoughtful planning many months ahead to avoid an interruption in financial security. If you are considering retirement, open links under the "Pre-Retired" drop down menu for information that will assist you in your transition from active employment to retirement.
For current MEA-Retired members, our website provides links under the "Member" drop down menu to information that will help make the retirement years more fulfilling and enjoyable. If you need to update your member contact information such as your address or have questions about your benefits, please contact Lisa Collins at the MEA Caribou Office. Her contact information can be found HERE.
Whether you are an active educational professional planning for retirement, or a retiree who is not yet a member of MEA-Retired, we want you to know the benefits of membership. Membership in MEA-Retired pays! Check out the benefits of membership in our membership brochure. This state-wide retired educator organization has 15 county affiliates and 1 higher education affiliate.
