Our local chapters carry out our mission of volunteering for communities and advancing local education initiatives.
Welcome to the Indiana Retired Teachers Association
Whether you are a retired Indiana teacher or administrator (or thinking about taking that step), we are your proud advocate and partner.
We are a non-partisan association that does not endorse candidates nor have a political action committee. We are respected for this non-partisan approach.
Since 1950, we have served retired educators as:
- Your planning resource - by providing information and guidance before and during retirement.
- Your voice in the Indiana General Assembly - by promoting your welfare as legislators consider your retirement benefits.
- Your benefit provider - by offering discounts on many goods and services from partners who appreciate your many years of service.
- Your social connection - by hosting local chapter meetings, regional events and travel opportunities where you can enjoy time with other retired colleagues.
We also support and encourage volunteerism among our members. Our retired teachers volunteer more than one million hours each year to educational causes, saving Hoosier taxpayers approximately $20 million annually.
That is why we have been recognized nationally for our commitment to our community and state.
As you can see, an IRTA membership is a great way to stay engaged and have fun.
