Save for your future
Most Wisconsin public school employees will need more than Social Security and their pension in retirement—the rest is up to you. WEA Member Benefits’ nationally-recognized 403(b) retirement savings program can help you meet your personal savings goals. It also provides tax-advantaged savings options for public school employees. The 403(b) is similar to the 401(k) in the private sector.
We also offer Individual Retirement Account (IRA) options as another great way to save for retirement. Both Roth and Traditional IRAs are available. Plus, your family members (spouse, children, parents, and parents-in-law) are also eligible for our IRA program.

For over 45 years, WEAC members have enjoyed the quality financial programs offered by Member Benefits—programs made available by their union.
WEAC created programs such as our nationally recognized 403(b) and personal insurance programs to give members a quality alternative to for-profit providers of financial services.
While eligibility for these programs is generally extended to all Wisconsin public school employees, WEAC members receive preferred pricing as an added value to their membership. Plus, family members may be eligible for most programs.

The Conversation Every Family Should Have: Long-Term Care Options From a Healthcare Perspective
Experts say 70% of those who reach age 65 will need some type of long-term care (LTC) during their lifetimes. Long-term care insurance may minimize the impact of any LTC expenses you may incur in retirement.
Join Eileen Dunn as she discusses options for elder care, the role state and Federal programs play in LTC, and types of LTC insurance available.
Eileen is an expert in geriatric and elder care and helps families determine the best options available for their loved ones. She has degrees in Social Work and Health Services Administration, is certified through the National Academy of Certified Care Managers, and is a member of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers.
Program administered by Associates of Clifton Park. Long-term care (LTC) insurance products are underwritten by multiple LTC insurers.
