Nearly five dozen association member benefits are available to IEA/NEA members. Ranging from financial benefits to insurance benefits to discounts to travel benefits to professional benefits, IEA members participate at a greater rate than NEA members nationwide.
Statistics for the 2016-17 membership year (the latest figures available) show that the market share of IEA member participation in most benefits is consistently better than the market share from all NEA members combined. Market share is simply a percentage of members who participate as compared to total membership.
Eighteen percent or IEA members hold an NEA life insurance policy, better than the national market penetration of 12%. Eleven percent of IEA members own an accidental death and dismemberment policy. A whopping 2800 members hold an auto/home insurance policy with California Casualty, a market share of 27%, far outpacing the national penetration of four percent. This is the most used benefit product used by IEA members. The second most used NEA member benefit is the credit card option; 1/5 (20%) of IEA members use an NEA credit card, greater than the national market penetration of 14%.
Since 2000 IEA member participation in IEA/NEA member benefits has ranked in the top 10% of market share of all the 51 NEA affiliates!! Congratulations!
