ERS Members - Please note the change in annual statement distribution! Beginning in the spring of 2020, annual statements can be accessed through Retirement Online or will be mailed to you directly from NYS Retirement (in previous years, they had been sent to the District for distribution.) IF YOUR MAILING OR EMAIL ADDRESS HAS RECENTLY CHANGED, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE UPDATED IT WITH NYSLRS!
An important message from NYSLRS 3/16/2020:
Your Retirement System Member Annual Statement contains valuable information about your NYSLRS membership and future retirement benefits through March 31, so it’s important to make sure you receive and review it each year. This year, you can choose to view your 2020 Statement using Retirement Online, NYSLRS’ self-service retirement account information tool.
To receive your 2020 Statement in Retirement Online, register for or sign in to your account (https://www.osc.state.ny.us/retire/retirement_online/customers.php). From your account homepage, click ‘Update’ next to ‘Member Annual Statement by,’ and choose ‘email’ from the dropdown. When your Statement is ready to view in May, you’ll get an email that directs you to Retirement Online to see it.
You can also update your delivery preference for other NYSLRS correspondence by clicking ‘Update’ next to ‘Contact by’ on your account homepage. Choosing ‘email’ as your delivery preference will ensure you receive retirement information as quickly as possible.
Now is also a good time to check and update all your retirement system contact information in Retirement Online. After you sign in, click on ‘Update’ next to your home address and email address. This will take you to the page where you can edit your information and save the changes.
Keep in mind that if you’ve changed addresses recently, NYSLRS may not have your correct address on file. Updating your contact information and delivery preference will ensure you receive important correspondence from NYSLRS in the future.
