    NYSUT Member Benefits is excited to announce the launch of our NEW online Financial Planning Center. This enhanced site will assist NYSUT members and their families with making a variety of important financial decisions.

    The NYSUT Member Benefits Financial Planning Center provides helpful tools and resources to assist members with a number of crucial decisions regarding financial wellness and retirement planning.

    This new site includes more than 100 modules on different financial topics along with a financial fitness check-up to see where members stand with their financial knowledge.

    Whether it's planning for retirement, saving for college for your children or considering purchasing a home, the choices we need to make on a regular basis are never easy. If you're already enjoying retirement, you may be dealing with long-term care needs, managing your investments and estate planning.

    NYSUT members can get assistance with these questions and more with our NEW Financial Planning Center.

    NYSUT Member Benefits believes strongly in protecting the NYSUT membership against fraud and identity theft. To that effect, we want to ensure that all NYSUT members & their families take the necessary steps to safeguard themselves against this type of crime.

    The NYSUT Member Benefits Corporation-endorsed ID Watchdog program has issued a consumer alert about the latest Android attacks. Google's Android operating system outranks Apple's iPhone by a huge percentage, and hackers believe targeting Android will yield the most results. Several new exploits aimed at Android systems show just how pervasive the problem has become and why every Android fan needs to be vigilant.

    In late April 2017, researchers at software technologies firm CheckPoint detected a new malware they dubbed FalseGuide in over 40 apps posted on Google Play. An estimated two million phone owners downloaded these fake gaming guide apps before their malignant intent was uncovered.

    Some of the malware-laced apps were available for six months before Google Play removed them. The toxic FalseGuide spread so far in such a short time because it targeted gamers addicted to certain games like Pokemon Go and Mortal Kombat.
