The Organization of Staff Analysts takes pride in the quality of service we provide to our members. In this section of our website, you will find a description of the Organization of Staff Analysts Welfare Fund benefits, details of some of our other services to members, and various forms that you may use to take advantage of OSA's Welfare Fund benefits. Copies of the current Citywide Agreement and our various current and past local unit agreements with the City of New York and related employers can also be found here.

Under "Join OSA," workers employed by the City of New York, the Transit Authority, New York City Health + Hospitals and the NYC Housing Authority who are represented by OSA can complete a digital dues checkoff authorization card that, when completed and submitted, enrolls you as a voluntary member of OSA, entitled to full democratic rights in your union.

On the "Welfare Fund Benefits" and "Additional Benefits" pages, you will find information about our superimposed major medical, optical, dental, and life insurance benefits, long and short term disability insurance, and other benefits.

All workers represented by OSA, except those in the Transit Authority, are covered by the OSA Welfare Fund benefits. TA analysts have their own benefits, through their employment.

If you are in a title represented by OSA and have not completed the Vital Data Sheet, the Basic Life Insurance Beneficiary Form and the Civil Service Salary Information Form, you should print, complete, and return them to the Welfare Fund by mail to: OSA Welfare Fund, 220 East 23rd Street, Suite 707, New York NY 10010.
