Member Assistance Resources


At NEA Member Benefits, we take our role as a member advocate seriously. In addition to providing financial, insurance, travel and shopping programs and services, advocating for and assisting you in times of need is an important part of our mission.

Whether you’re facing financial challenges due to layoffs or non-renewals, a natural disaster or the novel coronavirus pandemic, we have resources available to help. Through our Member Assistance resources, you’ll find tips, tools and access to temporary financial accommodations for NEA product participants.*
