Retiree Handbook

  • The Retiree Membership Handbook is currently being updated.

Congratulations on reaching retirement and entering a new and exciting phase of your life as a NYSUT retiree. Your support of NYSUT throughout your career has made NYSUT what it is today: the strongest and largest statewide union of professional employees in the country.

You may have retired from your job, but it is our hope that you have not retired from union advocacy. Our retirees — over 200,000 strong and growing — are our day-time union and our boots on the ground in every community. NYSUT retirees are our collective voice of experience that those in the state Capitol and in Washington, DC, cannot ignore.

This handbook outlines everything you need to know about being a NYSUT retiree and how to stay connected with the union and your fellow retirees.

NYSUT offers retiree members many services and benefits, including retiree membership; access to publications, programs and consultants to help meet your needs; logistical support for political action; and networking opportunities with your fellow retirees on the local level.
