Retired Teachers Chapter
A note from the chapter leader
Welcome to the Retired Teachers Chapter section of the UFT website. The UFT's Retired Teachers Chapter offers an array of services, programs and resources for retired members.
When you join the RTC, you will participate in what’s considered the nation’s best retiree program for public school educators and health care providers. The RTC is the go-to place for the next phase of your lives.
RTC members receive union event invitations via email, and emails are sent whenever important news breaks. Sign up for UFT emails.
