AFT + Legal & Financial Services

Legal Services

AFT + legal services makes it easy for members and their families to get the legal help they need to avoid and solve legal problems—and usually for free! One toll-free call or visit to the Web puts you in touch with a nationwide network law offices that offer free 30-minute consultations and discounted services. (New York State United Teachers members have a legal services program through NYSUT Member Benefits Trust. NYSUT members can call 800-626-8101 for more information.)

Credit Card

AFT has several credit cards, each with special features, to meet your unique financial needs.

Credit and Budget Counseling

Certified credit counselors are available 24 hours a day to help members with confidential financial guidance, free consumer credit counseling services and discounted debt-management assistance.

Mortgage

This program makes homebuying and refinancing easier and more affordable for members, their children and parents.

Save My Home Hotline

A dedicated Save My Home Hotline staffed by HUD-trained counselors is available free to all AFT members to discuss mortgage issues. The service is provided through the nonprofit Money Management International, which is accredited to provide counseling for union members facing foreclosure.
