If you are a new retiree, you will notice that full in-service dues were deducted from your summer pay checks. There is no need to request a refund. Upon receipt of all the dues records for UFT members from various city agencies, the accounting department will automatically calculate a refund for all eligible members and send them a check. Checks are expected to be sent out in December.
If you return to work for the DOE, you will notice you are paying dues as an employee. Refunds will be processed for the period of July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019, and will include only those dues amounts that are in excess of the full active dues rates for that period. These checks are expected to be sent out by October.
