The Oklahoma Retired Educators Association provides a voice for retired education employees, secures and protects benefits, and enhances the quality of life for its members.
Visionary Oklahoma educators led the fight to establish the Teachers’ Retirement System in 1943. In 1952, many of those same leaders founded the Oklahoma Retired Educators Association to promote and protect the interests of a growing retired educator community. Quickly, OREA became the voice for retired public education employees.
Several generations later, OREA remains the trusted leader in all matters related to retired educators in Oklahoma. In good times and bad, OREA has sought to provide excellent representation and benefits to its members.
Operating from a solid foundation of organizational knowledge and experience developed over many decades, OREA leaders responsibly represent member views in the public arena. OREA and its representatives are well-known and respected by the state’s political leaders.
