Enroll for health benefits

Sign up for prescription, dental and optical benefits

The union provides an array of benefits to supplement the health plan coverage that you and your eligible dependents receive from the city — but only if you enroll in the UFT Welfare Fund. Remember that this enrollment is separate from your New York City health plan enrollment, which provides your major medical coverage.

Use our online form to enroll in the UFT Welfare Fund.

NOTE: You must be logged in to uft.org to access this online form.

See our step-by-step instructions to create an account on UFT.org and access your Welfare Fund benefits, or watch our video demonstration for more information. 

You can also complete and submit a hard-copy UFT Welfare Fund enrollment form along with any necessary documentation for your dependents. You can get an enrollment form at your school from your UFT chapter leader or by calling the Fund forms hotline at 212-539-0539.
