You may not be retired yet, but you can join the Alberta Retired Teachers’ Association at any age and 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.
ARTA 101 has a lot to offer active teachers, including:
Scholarships – $2,500 for an active teacher, $2,500 for a direct relative
See arta.net/scholarships to learn more and apply
ARTA Discount Programs – Planning a vacation or buying a new car? Looking for a fitness membership or going for a nice dinner out? ARTA can help you save on these and so much more!
Use your MyARTA account to get deals on car rentals, entry at special attractions, and at a variety of other businesses around the province.
Education Advocacy – ARTA advocates on the behalf of active and retired teachers, with the power of over 28,500 voices!
We look forward to connecting with you and supporting your journey as a teacher.
