Associate Members

NYSUT membership is necessary to participate in any NYSUT Member Benefits-endorsed program. By joining NYSUT as an Associate Member - Continuing NYSUT Member Benefits Coverage, you are eligible to enroll in or apply for the following Member Benefits-endorsed insurance, financial and legal programs. You can also take advantage of our many endorsed shopping/travel/personal benefits.

You can join as an Associate Member in this category if you are currently covered by one or more Member Benefits-endorsed programs and wish to continue participation in and/or maintain access to programs -- but have no other means of maintaining NYSUT membership.
