Heads Up

NYSLRS Membership: An Employer's Role

When you hire new employees, you must notify them, in writing, of their right to join the New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS). Employees must acknowledge that they received the notice in writing, and you must keep a record of their acknowledgment on file. Read more in chapter three of our Employer’s Guide.


You Should Know

The Retirement Adjustment Reporting (RAR) system allows you to submit online adjustments to your employees’ previously reported days worked, salary and contributions. In most cases, you won’t have to submit the paper adjustment report form to us. If you submit your monthly report online, you can use the RAR system. Please take a few minutes to learn about the program.
