At NYSUT Member Benefits, we only have one goal in mind -- to serve the NYSUT member. Members like Benjamin & Casey Early, who saved substantially when switching to our endorsed MetLife Auto & Home program. The Earlys now have the strength of Member Benefits acting as their advocate... that's just one part of what we call the "Power of the Union."
"We are both teachers for the Shenendehowa Central School District and have been NYSUT members since 2006. We recently bought a house closer to work and had received a mailing from NYSUT Member Benefits about the endorsed MetLife Auto & Home program around the same time.
Since we were in the process of gathering information for our homeowners insurance anyway, we decided to look into MetLife and compare the rates. The rate quoted to us by the MetLife agent was better than some of the others we had investigated, and we were encouraged by their fast response time.
The mailing from NYSUT Member Benefits also indicated there was an increased savings from MetLife if we bundled both our auto and homeowners insurance policies together. It was a huge savings! All told, our family is paying close to 40 percent less than we were paying for the same coverage that we had with our prior carrier. We were very happy to make the switch to MetLife Auto & Home, and the transition to using the Member Benefits payroll deduction option to pay the premium was a seamless process as well."

Alternate Homeowners Insurance Carriers
The MetLife Auto & Home program includes access to alternate homeowners insurance carriers when MetLife is not able to provide desired coverage in coastal areas. If members are denied coverage in these regions, MetLife will offer to refer them to its General Agency. MetLife's General Agency acts as a broker to help members secure coverage through companies that MetLife has vetted and approved.
MetLife currently has several companies in New York State that offer this additional coverage and one company in Florida offering this coverage. These companies are rated an "A" or better but have more lenient underwriting guidelines. MetLife will only refer members to the General Agency if it cannot provide coverage based on underwriting guidelines and the member agrees to the referral. If members refuse the referral, they are free to find alternative coverage on their own.
Please note that payroll or pension deduction will not be available for policies written through MetLife's General Agency.
MetLife® Auto & Home is a brand of Metropolitan Property and Casualty Insurance Company and its Affiliates, Warwick, RI.
