Your Association Is Ready To Help


The Retired Educators Association of Massachusetts is an organization committed to serving the needs and interests of its members based on democratic principles. We encourage the use of our members’ collective power to promote their economic and social well being while utilizing their professional background and collegiality to develop a sense of community. As an organization devoted specifically to retired educational personnel, the Retired Educators Association of Massachusetts stands as their advocate and is committed to taking any necessary action to promote and protect the interest of its members.

REAM helps protect pensions, offers great benefits and is a way to stay connected to fellow educators. We are the leading voice of retired educators advocating on behalf of retirees of the Massachusetts Teachers’ Retirement System (MTRS). REAM is a dynamic, fun organization with flexible volunteer opportunities and benefits for retired educators and school personnel.


Pension Protection


We're the organization guarding your retirement income from legislative changes that could reduce your pension. We've been fighting for years, and this is no time to stop. Pensions could be questioned here and all over the country at any time.

Together, we can defend pensions. REAM works tirelessly in the Massachusetts legislature to protect your future pension benefits. An experienced lobbyist, paid by REAM, provides legislative representation, proposes legislation, obtains sponsors and testifies on behalf of REAM members at legislative committee meetings.

Access To Benefits


When you retire, you often lose benefits such as dental, vision, and other insurance. Your state benefits, and even Medicare, might not cover you in these areas. In fact, there's no out-of-pocket maximum.

The good news? Your membership gives you access to a wide range of quality insurance plans. As a member, you'll enjoy access to policies designed to protect your medical and financial well-being--everything from life insurance to Medicare supplement plans. And, thanks to our strength in numbers, you can enroll in the coverage you need at discounted group rates.


Social Opportunities


Looking forward to meeting others and socializing again? Join REAM now and be ready for future opportunities like nights out with friends old and new, group travel, volunteering, and more. And that's just the beginning. You'll be invited to meetings and other events that will keep you connected to like-minded people.

Research shows that social connection is critical to our mental, physical and emotional health. That's reason alone to join. Become a member today and be among friends.
