Learn more about Member Benefits
Who we are, who we serve, and what we offer.
WEA Member Benefits has been helping PK-12 Wisconsin public school employees and their families achieve their financial goals since 1972.
Who is Member Benefits?
At WEA Member Benefits:
- We believe in education.
- We believe in public schools.
- We believe public school employees and their families deserve to be financially secure.
We were created by Wisconsin educators for Wisconsin educators over 50 years ago. The creation of WEA Member Benefits was the solution born out of the determination of Wisconsin public educators who saw a need for a trusted resource to guide them to and through their financial journey. They sought unbiased financial education, products, and services provided with their best interests in mind, and a partner who understood their values and needs and treated them with respect.
Today, we offer retirement savings programs, financial planning, and auto, home, and umbrella insurance to Wisconsin public educators and their families.
Our IRA program is available in several states outside of Wisconsin. We’ve also expanded our product line to include long-term care, life, and Medicare supplement insurance, which are offered nationwide.
