Switching to IEA Autopay is how we take our power back and show anti-public education politicians that we are committed to good public education policy regardless of their attacks.

Threats of similar legislation are rising in Idaho and are expected to pass within the next few years. This is why IEA leaders are proactively working to move all members away from payroll deduction to AutoPay. Stand with your colleagues and switch to IEA AutoPay now.
