The Washington State School Retirees’ Association (formerly the Washington State Retired Teachers’ Association) is often referred to as WSSRA. More than 17,000 members belong to WSSRA.
WSSRA aims to enhance the security and vitality of school retirees’ retirement years. They welcome all present and future TRS, PERS and SERS retirees. They provide pro-retiree and pro-education advocacy and leadership to the Washington State Legislature. They have representatives on governmental bodies that impact retirement and pension issues, and they collaborate and advocate with other groups that share their vision, values, and aims.
They also sponsor pre-retirement seminars throughout the state, award (in cooperation with the PEMCO Insurance Company) substantial scholarships to future teachers, provide classroom grants to active teachers in local schools, and foster volunteer activities with Washington’s school children.
WSSRA provides access to many members-only benefits through the Association Member Benefits Advisors (AMBA). Special insurance rates, travel discounts and product savings are available to our members.
They consider themselves educators for life. If you are or have been a certificated or classified school district employee in the state of Washington—from superintendent to school nurse or behavioral psychologist to bus driver—you are welcome at the Washington State School Retirees’ Association.
