    Pension benefits are exceptionally good at the NYC DOE. There is a fixed pension benefit that requires a 3% employee contribution for the extent of employment. Vesting occurs after ten years of full time employment. Part-time employment and per-session work are also recognized in computing the pension amount. At 30 yrs, pension is equivalent to 2% of the final average salary calculated on the final e years. There are some nuances here, but basically that’s how it works. In addition, there are 2 possible self-contribution possibilities.

    As a substitute teacher, you can take days off anytime you want but there are no health benefits, no insurance and no summer time pay, you are paid for days worked not a salary

    The Department of Education (DOE) provides insurance and teachers are some other staff are covered by a union. The union is called the United Federation of Teachers (UFT) and they are there to help you if anything goes wrong or if you feel like you have been cheated in some way. There are discounts given to teachers at multiple stores, go look up a list, but you need a teacher ID which you have to get at the DOE office. I took my picture but never received mine. Regardless, the DOE is good for people who really enjoy teaching and kids. You get paid summers, and have the choice to work summer to earn extra money. If you have a Master's Degree you can up your salary a bit and get paid a bit more.
