Retiree Members

Retiree MembersWhether you have just retired or been retired for many years, thank you for your many years of dedicated service. As a NYSUT retiree, you can enjoy the benefits of dozens of programs and services endorsed by NYSUT Member Benefits.

Our mission is to make available important insurance, legal and financial programs along with real discount opportunities to help save on everyday purchases. Many of our endorsed programs include value-added benefits available exclusively to NYSUT retiree and in-service members.

Member Benefits offers crucial insurance programs, legal & financial services and numerous shopping/travel/personal programs -- including our MB Discounts & Deals program! Through MB Discounts & Deals, you can save up to 50% at more than 1 million locations on restaurant dine-in or take-out, hotels, flights, car rentals, and much more.

Participation in our endorsed programs also offers the added protection of having a trusted advocate on your side. Member Benefits staff take great pride in supporting you with any questions or concerns that may arise.

Our newly created Retiree Member Benefits Guide offers a snapshot of the endorsed programs and services available to NYSUT retirees along with other helpful information.

Taking the time to plan ahead will help to make the stressful transition from in-service work to retirement an easier process. If you are currently enrolled in Member Benefits-endorsed programs and would like to continue participation, you must maintain your NYSUT membership as a retiree. This can be accomplished in one of two ways:

1. Continue membership within your local if retiree membership is offered. Contact your local to find out if any retiree membership requirements are in place. You must comply with these retiree membership requirements to continue your membership in NYSUT and our national affiliates, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) and National Education Association (NEA).

2. Continue as an at-large member of NYSUT through the Retiree Council in your region. Contact your local to ensure you will be reported as retired to NYSUT. This will provide you with membership in the Retiree Council in your region along with NYSUT, AFT, and NEA.
