New Members

As a new NYSUT member, you will receive a special welcome mailing sent to your home address from NYSUT Member Benefits upon our receipt of new member enrollment information from your local association.

New Members Receive the Following Offers:

1. Information about the many endorsed Shopping/Travel/Personal programs in place for NYSUT members.

2. Provision of a no-cost Term Life Insurance policy providing coverage for up to $25,000* for one year, as long as NYSUT membership is maintained through your local. New members under age 40 will not need to complete any paperwork to receive this no-cost coverage.

New members age 40 and older will receive the no-cost coverage for a one-year period if they can successfully answer several medical questions as part of a simplified issue offer. The insurance is guaranteed renewable for up to $25,000 at the end of the year with no additional medical underwriting.

3. The NYSUT Member Benefits Trust-endorsed Disability Insurance Plan** can provide vital income replacement at a time when you need it most. As a new member age 64 or younger working 20 hours per week or more, for a limited time period you have the opportunity to apply for a long-term monthly disability benefit with just a few health-related questions.

Please Note
: For purposes of these offers, a new member is considered to be anyone -- including an agency fee payer -- who has never been a member of or agency fee payer to NYSUT in the past. Transfers from one local association to another will not be considered new members.
