NYSLRS Members Can Now Manage Benefits Online

Published May 10, 2017

The New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS) has introduced Retirement Online, a new website that members can use to access and manage their retirement information online.

Why Should I Use Retirement Online?

Retirement Online gives NYSLRS members a convenient and secure way to review their benefits and conduct transactions in real time. In many cases, members can use Retirement Online instead of sending forms through the mail or calling NYSLRS.

With Retirement Online, members can:

  • View benefit information
  • Update contact information
  • Manage beneficiaries
  • Apply for a loan
  • View current loan and service credit purchase balances

Retirement Online is also safe to use. NYSLRS has incorporated several security measures similar to those used by financial institutions.

How To Register For An Account

Members should visit the NYSLRS website to learn more about Retirement Online, and take a few minutes to create a new account.

When registering for an account, you’ll be asked a series of questions to verify your identity. The questions are provided by a trusted third-party source, and NYSLRS does not store the questions or your answers. It is recommended that you use Internet Explorer to access Retirement Online.

If you have any questions or need help completing the registration process, please call the NYSLRS Contact Center at 1-866-805-0990 or 518-474-7736 and select option 1 to get help for Retirement Online. Contact Center representatives are available Monday through Friday from 7:30 am – 4:15 pm.

Update Your Information for Member Annual Statements

The distribution of the Member Annual Statements is expected to begin mid-May and continue through mid-July. Beginning this year, NYSLRS will mail Member Annual Statements directly to your home address. Statements will no longer be sent to and distributed by Human Resources.

You will be able to update your contact information through Retirement Online to ensure that you receive your statement to the correct address. If you do not receive your statement or have questions, please contact NYSLRS.
