You may not be retired yet, but you can join the Alberta Retired Teachers’ Association at any age.

Start reaping some of the benefits of retirement early! If you’re a teacher in Alberta and you’ve contributed to the Alberta Teachers’ Retirement Fund (ATRF) pension plan for at least five years, you’re eligible to join ARTA as an ARTA 101 member.

ARTA 101 membership is free until you retire.

When your retirement date finally comes around, your membership can make the switch too, with no need to re-apply.
