About our programs
The Retired Teachers Chapter offers many programs and benefits to our members, but the lifelong learning provided through the UFTWF Retiree Programs’ Si Beagle Learning Centers is perhaps the most popular. Our “university for retired teachers” allows members to nurture their talents and explore new ones. In addition to hundreds of courses and seminars offered both remote and in-person at UFT borough offices and throughout the tri-state area and Florida, the program also includes trips, a theater program and a dine-around program.
The UFTWF Social Services team has a professional staff, including two social workers, who provide services like counseling, guidance, information and referrals to retirees and their families. Information and recommendations for retirement communities, nursing homes and support groups are also available. Our retiree legal plan was designed to help retirees with legal issues and estate planning at no or low cost.
We are here for you, in retirement as well as when you were in service. We want you to stay connected and enjoy all that we have to offer.
