NYSTRS Now Offers
Personal Device Consultations for MembersNYSTRS is pleased to announce a new convenient option for our benefits consultations program. Members can now connect to a NYSTRS video consultation using their own personal computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone.
With this new option, members can meet face to face via video with a NYSTRS representative who will discuss their retirement benefits and options, explain the retirement process, and answer any questions they might have. An estimate of the member’s benefits will be provided to them before the consultation (either via their secure MyNYSTRS account or by U.S. mail if they prefer).
Members can schedule a video consultation through the Tools page in their MyNYSTRS account or by calling us at (800) 348-7298, Ext. 6100. Consultations are still also offered by telephone and may be scheduled in the same manner. (In-person meetings are on hold due to the pandemic.)
The poster on the ensuing page is being mailed to school principals. Please ensure it is posted in locations frequented by your staff. An electronic version of this Administrative Bulletin, complete with the poster, is also available on the Employers > Administrative Bulletins page of our website.
Thank you for your assistance in spreading the word about this important service to members.
An archive of Delegate News issued since 2005 is found on our website.
Protecting your eyes and your vision is an important part of living a healthy lifestyle.
If you are a NYSUT member looking for vision coverage for yourself and/or your family, consider the NYSUT Member Benefits Trust-endorsed Vision Plan.
Our endorsed Vision Plan provides one complete eye exam (including glaucoma testing and, when professionally indicated, dilation) and one pair of eyeglasses (lenses and frames) or contact lenses per benefit period, paid-in-full according to plan specifications from participating providers.
