Retirees may renew their membership in the Welfare Trust each year. Early in September retirees will receive a letter from Steve Hertzog, 2nd Vice President in charge of memberhip, inviting them to join the Arlington Teachers' Association (ATA) Welfare Trust and the Arlington Retired Teachers' Association (ARTA).

There is a fee for the Welfare Trust and ARTA. The fee for the Welfare Trust is $415 and the fee for ARTA is $12. There is no cost for NYSUT and AFT membership for retirees.

If a retiree chooses not to continue their ATA Welfare Trust coverage when they receive the invitation in September, they will not be allowed to rejoin in the future.

If you need additional assistance, call Ron Higgins - Welfare Trust Chairperson - (845) 454-7002
