Tier 6 members make retirement contributions based on their earnings, which can change from year-to-year. Learn how contribution rates can change over time.
The deadline for members to file a notice with NYSLRS of their participation in the World Trade Center rescue, recovery or clean up efforts has been extended to September 11, 2018 (Chapter 326, Laws of 2016). If you participated, and you meet eligibility requirements, we encourage you to file a World Trade Center Notice (RS6047-N) . Filing this notice will protect your rights, and the rights of your beneficiaries to apply for benefits in the future.
