The National Education Assn. (NEA) and Massachusetts Teachers Assn. (MTA) offer both annual and lifetime retired membership options. The MTA membership year runs from July 1 through June 30

Annual dues payers receive a renewal bill each summer. Membership cards for the forthcoming year are issued upon receipt of the renewal dues payment.

Lifetime membership requires a one-time dues payment. Membership automatically rolls forward into each new membership year and a card request is generated each August.

Membership cards are accepted by vendors through the end of August each year (rather than June) to allow time for the issuance of new annual cards.

As of 2021, NEA Retired membership is available at a reduced rate for Education Support Professional (ESP) members. ESPs keep students healthy, safe, supported, engaged and challenged so they are ready to learn. It is difficult to imagine a school operating for one day without ESPs. They include school employees in the following job families: Clerical services, Custodial and maintenance services, Food services, Health and student services, Paraeducators, Security services, Skilled trades, Technical services, and Transportation services

The membership dues rates for the current membership year are listed below. The NEA and MTA are unified organizations, so you must select one level of each to join, but you can mix and match annual and lifetime memberships.
