COVID-19 message from NYSUT Member Benefits Trust Chairperson



During these unprecedented times as we face a worldwide pandemic with the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, our first priority here at NYSUT Member Benefits is the health and well-being of our staff, NYSUT members and their families.

While the NYSUT building is closed until April 15, 2020, NYSUT Member Benefits staff are currently working remotely to ensure we can continue to provide the benefits and services that you and your families count on without interruption. We encourage you to contact us at 800-626-8101 or email us with any questions or concerns.

It is our goal to respond to the questions and concerns of our members in as timely a manner as possible. We ask that you please be patient as we work through this difficult period together.

At the same time, we are aware that some of our endorsed programs and services do not correspond well to the current situation, such as our travel, restaurant or shopping offerings, and ask that you exercise the appropriate precautions in the coming months and beyond.

We have been in contact with our endorsed program providers, who will continue to maintain and support their programs. NYSUT Member Benefits remains steadfast in our efforts to serve as your advocate for any issues or concerns that may arise when participating in our programs.

For your convenience, below are links to the categories for our endorsed programs & services along with our secure "Contact Us" form:


Insurance Programs

Legal Service Plan

Financial Counseling Program

Shopping/Travel/Personal Programs

We will get through this challenge together. I wish you well, and please be safe.


In solidarity,

JPhilippe Abraham
