New York State Common Retirement Fund

The New York State Common Retirement Fund is the third largest public pension plan in the United States, providing retirement security for over one million New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS) members, retirees and beneficiaries.

The Fund's mission, values and investment philosophy have earned it the distinction of being one of the best-managed and best-funded plans in the nation. Since its establishment in 1921, the Fund's prudent investment management, solid returns, and constitutionally protected benefits have provided retirement security for generations of hard-working New Yorkers.

For a breakdown of the retirement system, see NYSLRS Fact Sheet.
