Premium Calm service (and other benefits) available free to NYSUT members


YSUT Member Benefits is pleased to announce the availability of the premium Calm subscription as a free benefit for all NYSUT in-service and retiree members. This service provides members with unlimited access to the full Calm library of sleep, meditation and relaxation content. Members can add up to five dependents (age 16 or older) to receive their own premium Calm subscription.

To learn more about how to sign up for the Calm service, visit memberbenefits.nysut.org and then click on “Free Member Benefits.” From that landing page, you can also explore each of the following benefits available at no cost to members.

Feeling anxious or stressed? The Peer Support Line — staffed by trained in-service and retired individuals who understand the unique professional and personal challenges of NYSUT members — is a confidential helpline that can provide answers, resources and empathetic support when you need it.

Like many Americans, you may have concerns related to credit or debt issues. All NYSUT members (both in-service and retiree) are eligible to receive a free, no obligation debt consultation with a Cambridge Credit Counseling certified counselor. Members can speak with a Cambridge loan counselor, attend a NYSUT Student Loan Workshop, or visit the Cambridge Student Loan Portal through this benefit.

The Financial Learning Center — powered by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance — is an online platform offering numerous articles designed to assist members with achieving their personal financial goals and better understand the nuances of insurance, savings, investing and more. Articles are updated monthly; previous articles can be found in the Financial Learning Center article archive available on the Member Benefits site.

All NYSUT members (both in-service and retiree) are automatically provided with a $5,000 accidental death & dismemberment insurance benefit, along with travel assistance services from AXA Assistance that focus on providing coordination services to travelers. In addition, members have access to the YourCare360 service for caregiving guidance and answers to many of the questions that confront family caregivers.

Finally, new NYSUT members are eligible to receive a free term life insurance policy providing coverage for up to $25,000 for one year — guaranteed renewable at the end of the year. There is no obligation to continue the coverage at the end of the one-year period.
