Our new AFT prepaid card program offers a direct deposit feature and more. Cardholders can bank anywhere and manage their finances 24/7 with the mobile app. It’s easy to get, simple to use. Use it everywhere debit cards are accepted—in-person, online or by phone.
All AFT members have AFT-sponsored ID theft protection at no cost to you. Services include an ID theft risk assessment, limited credit restoration and recovery services, and up to a $10,000 reimbursement. Register online to maximize program protections.
Members can upgrade their ID theft protection to a premium plan, which includes 24/7 credit and Social Security ID monitoring and up to $1 million in insurance in the event of a security breach that drains your accounts. Family protection is also available.
For personal matters, members can choose from two levels of legal savings: a prepaid legal plan with full coverage on a wide range of services, or free access to a discount legal plan that includes a half-hour consultation. 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.
In tough times, a variety of AFT + Member Benefits programs, through Union Plus, offer tools to help stretch your household budget and in some cases, offer direct financial aid.
Members who have an AFT/Union Plus credit card, a Union Plus mortgage, or a personal loan may be eligible for increased financial benefits due to job loss or furlough.
Credit-qualified members can take control of their finances by consolidating high-interest consumer and credit debt into a personal loan that features no hidden fees and one predictable monthly payment.
