Who is WSSRA?

The Washington State School Retirees’ Association (formerly the Washington State Retired Teachers’ Association) is often referred to as WSSRA. More than 17,000 members belong to WSSRA. WSSRA aims to enhance the security and vitality of your retirement years. We welcome all present and future TRS, PERS and SERS retirees. We provide pro-retiree and pro-education advocacy and leadership to the Washington State Legislature. 

WSSRA & Our Committees


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 behavioral psychologist to bus driver—you are welcome at the Washington State School Retirees’ Association.
