Retirement benefits are paid monthly. See our Guide for Retirees for more information about your benefits.

If your benefit is paid by direct deposit:

You will have access to your retirement benefit on the last business day of each month (indicated by an “E” on the schedule.)

Visit our Contact Us page to find out how to change your direct deposit information.

If your benefit is paid by check:

Your retirement benefit check will be mailed on the second-to-last business day of each month for that month (indicated by an “M” on the schedule below).

If you haven’t received your check by the eighth of the following month, please Contact Us to request a replacement check.

If you received your check and it was lost or stolen, Contact Us immediately. If you email us, be sure to include your telephone number with area code so we can call you.

Our Direct Deposit Program enables you to receive your retirement benefits quickly and safely. To enroll, complete a Direct Deposit Application (RS6370) Adobe pdf and return it to NYSLRS.
