Each Tuesday and Wednesday at 4:30 throughout the month of March NEOEA members are invited to engage with NEA Member Benefits via Zoom and learn more about Student Loan Forgiveness and Retirement. The ZOOM link will be the same for all five occurrences of each topic. Each presentation will last an hour, but the presenter(s) will be available about 30 minutes prior to the start time for members who may just have a question or two before committing to stay. And, of course, the presenter(s) will stay on following the presentation for questions that any member may have.
- Student Loan Forgiveness Options for ALL Education Employees: With more than 44 million borrowers and over $1.6 TRILLION in outstanding debt, the impact of student loans is impacting not only borrowers but communities at large. But despite the resistance of some to loan forgiveness, it remains available to education employees. Depending on where you work, what you do and what types of loans are outstanding, teachers and EDUCATION SUPPORT PERSONNEL may be eligible to have all or some of their loans forgiven. And with the new NEA Student Loan Forgiveness Navigation Tool, NEA members can determine if there is a more economically advantageous payment option as well as determine which forgiveness option(s) are applicable and provides the tools to apply – for free!

- When Can I Afford to Retire or Will I Just Die At My Desk?: Retirement is so confusing and planning is usually far more complex than members realize. And it is even more complex if you are married to someone working in the private sector because of Social Security’s Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset. But with this workshop, we will increase members’ awareness of their retirement system, their pension payout options, health care costs and more. Participants will be able to determine if they are on the right track in their retirement preparations and, if not, what are their options, including sheltering severance pay and purchasable service credit options.
