"I'm a member of the Columbus Education Association. I attended breakout sessions every chance I got. I found out a few months ago that I went from $163,000 in student loan debt to $40,000. So far, I've had $123,000 forgiven! Thank you, NEA Member Benefits!"

Partnering with Companies that Believe in Public Education

Great care is taken in choosing partners that not only share our passion for and commitment to public education, but that can deliver special agreements and exclusive deals that can help members stretch their dollars and protect their families. And member dues are never used for the promotion of products and services.
