Member Benefits

The most important benefit to joining REAM is knowing what legislation could affect your pension and being able to respond by contacting your Minnesota state senator and representative. TRA and/or PERA members receiving a pension are invited to enjoy the benefits of a REAM membership and stay informed about legislative changes that may lower their pensions.


In addition to helping keep our member’s pensions safe, a REAM membership includes access to the following benefits.
