Welcome Message from the NYSUT Member Benefits Trust Chairperson:
As the Secretary-Treasurer of NYSUT and Chairperson of the NYSUT Member Benefits Trust, I would like to welcome you to the NYSUT Member Benefits website! I am extremely fortunate and grateful to have the opportunity to work for the betterment of all of the hard-working women and men that comprise this labor organization.
NYSUT members and their loved ones have access to dozens of endorsed programs available through NYSUT Member Benefits, including auto, homeowners and life insurance; vision and dental plans; legal and financial services; hotel and vacation discounts; car and truck rental discounts; competitive savings rates; discounted sports and concert tickets; theme park discounts; and much more.
And unlike with purchasing products available to the general public, there's no need to go it alone when Member Benefits has your back. NYSUT Member Benefits acts as your advocate for any program you participate in, and we'll do our best to quickly resolve any issues or concerns you may have. Whether you are participating in one of our insurance, legal & financial or shopping/travel/personal programs, NYSUT members have the "Power of the Union" behind them.
We strive to provide the highest-quality programs for NYSUT members and closely scrutinize all proposals from reputable vendors before any endorsements are given. Once a program is granted the Member Benefits endorsement, our staff and consultants regularly monitor it for participation, member satisfaction, utilization, financial health and product competitiveness.
This website contains a variety of information about our endorsed programs & services along with important information about updates/changes to programs. I encourage each of you to spend some time on this site and learn about all that we have to offer. Through this website, you can also join our voluntary MAP Alert (Member Alert Program) email service to be the first to learn about new endorsed programs; changes to existing programs; and special offers only available to MAP Alert members.
In addition, our quarterly Member Benefits E-Direct electronic newsletter provides NYSUT members with helpful educational information while keeping them aware of the endorsed programs & services that we offer. We have recently enhanced the archive section for our e-newsletter and all previous issues of this publication are now available in an easy-to-view bookcase arrangement.
So again, please take the time to explore this site and learn about all of the benefits that your NYSUT membership provides to you. And feel free to call us at 800-626-8101 if you have any questions about any of our endorsed programs & services.
