NEA Member Benefits Offers Assistance to Members Facing Job Loss and Salary Cuts

As the country’s economy makes a tentative recovery, educators are still vulnerable to layoffs and salary reductions. In addition, many NEA members have suffered losses of income by spouses and other family members. NEA Member Benefits (NEA MB) has examined its program offerings and worked with program partners to identify resources and accommodations that could potentially help affected members and their families.

Various types of support are available to program participants and members, including:

  • Job search service
  • Financial counseling
  • Mortgage assistance programs
  • Credit card and insurance Payment options
  • Retirement savings waivers

A special Member Assistance page on the NEA MB website, neamb.com, provides details about these and other support resources. The page also includes a downloadable brochure with summary information about assistance options.

To access the Member Assistance page, visit www.neamb.com and click on the Member Assistance article on the home page, or enter “Member Assistance” in the search box at the top of the home page and click “Search.”

In addition, members may call the NEA MB Member Service Center toll free at
1-800-637-4636 and speak to a Member Service Representative or email their questions to ask-us@neamb.com.

NEA MB will continue to investigate every possible avenue for providing relief to NEA members during these challenging times; new information will be posted to the Member Assistance page as it becomes available.
