Seattle School Retirees' Association 151 South Lander ST. #C Seattle, WA 98134 206 521-5170

Welcome to our site!

Seattle School Retirees Association.

The Seattle School Retirees Association (SSRA) is one of the State Units of The Washington State School Retirees' Association (WSSRA).There are more than 16,000 retired school employees represented by the WSSRA and the SSRA is one of the largest units with over 1,100 members.

WSSRA aims to enhance the security and vitality of our retirement years.We welcome all present and future TRS, PERS, and SERS retirees. We provide pre-retiree and pro-education advocacy and leadership to the Washington State Legislature. We have representatives on governmental bodies that impact retirement and pension issues and we collaborate and advocate with other groups that share our vision, values, and aims.

We help sponsor pre-retirement seminars throughout the Seattle area, award (in cooperation with the PEMCO Insurance Company and the Seattle Public Schools) scholarships to future teachers and other deserving students.We also provide grants to active teachers in local schools and foster volunteer activities with Seattle School children and groups throughout the city.

WSSRA provides access to many membership benefits through the Association Members Benefits Advisors (AMBA).These benefits include special insurance rates, travel discounts, and product savings.

We consider ourselves educators for life. If you are or have been a certificated or classified school district employee in the State of Washington, from superintendent to school nurse or classroom teacher to lunchroom staff or paraprofessional, you are welcome to belong to the SSRA and thus to the WSSRA.

We hope you will explore our website and learn of our specific mission and goals. This year we will be working to increase membership and protecting the health insurance benefit the State gives PEBB insured members. We will continue to provide interesting, enlightening, and entertaining meetings throughout the year. We hope to see you at one of our meetings at The Canal in Ballard. We meet the first Tuesday of the month with the exception of January, June, July, and August. We look forward to your joining us at a future meeting.
