NRTA: AARP’s Educator Community has joined the National Institute on Retirement Security (NIRS), a research and education not-for-profit organization in Washington, DC. NIRS was established to fill a gap in understanding on the value that defined benefit pensions play in ensuring retirement security for workers, as well as their value to employers, and the economy.
Through the collaboration with NRTA, active and retired educators can now access NIRS products and services — at no cost. NIRS programs and information serve as valuable tools to help educate local officials and stakeholders about teacher retirement issues. NIRS member services include: Research, Education Materials, Counsel, Commentary, Events/Speakers, and Technical Assistance.
NRTA and NIRS will continue to work together to help ensure that public pensions remain the cornerstone of retirement security for America’s teachers.
