DCTA Retired

Who We Are:

Retired Members may not go into our schools every day, but it doesn’t mean they’ve stopped caring for students and our profession.


Membership in in DCTA-Retired provides you with an active, organized proponent voice to support Colorado public schools and our PERA pension benefits. Your participation in DCTA-R will keep you in touch with the statewide and national activities of your peers and your profession. As a member, you will be informed about important issues, such as retirement, medical and insurance benefits. Your eligibility for NEA Member Benefits programs will continue, and you can continue to support your colleagues, public education and children. DCTA-R offers a variety of social, volunteer and leadership activities. Member events such as hikes, lunches and visits to museums, theaters and sporting events are organized to suit many interests.

How to Join Us:

Anyone at least 45 years old, eligible to receive PERA or PERA-Denver retirement, and who was employed at least five years in a public school position that qualifies for Active membership can join the DCTA/CEA/NEA-Retired Associations. Lifetime Dues are paid once at the time you join and guarantee a one-time cost for dues for life. An Annual Dues option is available, but subject to price increases and potential loss of benefits.


We hope you will join the thousands of Retired Educators in Colorado who have decided to join their national, state and local professional associations that work collectively to help every student thrive.
