Planning for Teachers and Administrators (PTAA) was founded in 1998 to educate and advise educators on retirement strategies and options. We have been exclusively endorsed by The Retired Educators Association of Massachusetts (REAM) since 1999.
PTAA and REAM have joined together and are committed to serving the needs and interests of REAM members. We encourage the use of our members' collective power to promote members' economic and social well being while leveraging their professional background and collegiality to develop a sense of community.
The Retired Educators Association of Massachusetts was founded in 1951 and is the oldest organization in the state for retired educators. Headquartered in Marlborough, Massachusetts, REAM has 17 chapters throughout the state. At the state level, it is governed by state officers that are elected, an executive director that is appointed by the Board of Directors, and the Board of Directors that is made up of at least one person elected by each chapter.
The main emphasis of the association is to initiate and support legislation that will benefit its membership, particularly, but not exclusively, the COLA (Cost of Living Adjustment). It encourages the use of its members' collective power to promote their economic and social well being while utilizing their professional background and collegiality to develop a sense of community.
As an organization devoted specifically to retired and active educational personnel, the Retired Educators Association of Massachusetts stands as their advocate and is committed to taking any necessary action to promote and protect the interest of its members.
