Post-Retirement Reporting (PRR)

Share This Page:


The Post-Retirement Reporting program allows School Districts and Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) to electronically comply with the reporting requirements established by Section 217 of the Retirement and Social Security Law. This program enables School Districts and BOCES to:

  • Provide notification when a New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS) retiree earns more than the Section 212 limit, which is currently $35,000.*
  • Annually report all public retirees (including independent contractors/consultants) on payroll during the previous calendar year.

Even if an employer did not employ any public retirees during the previous calendar year, the employer must still complete an annual report certifying that there are no public retirees to report.

By submitting the Section 212 notification and/or annual report form, you are certifying the information contained in the electronically transmitted data is a true and correct statement for each retiree reported. As certification is required, you must submit this information directly and not by means of a service provider.

Annual reports can be submitted between January 1 and March 31 of the following calendar year.

If you have any questions, you may find our Post-Retirement Reporting Frequently Asked Questions section helpful.

To begin your post-retirement report, please log on to your online programs, using your /RIR username and password. Note: this is a secure site. You must have a username and password to enter. If you do not have a username and password, email the Post-Retirement Unit or contact the unit by phone at 518-474-5606.

* The earnings limit was increased as a result of new legislation signed into law in December, 2019. Prior to the new law, the limit was $30,000.
