As a member of the New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS), you are covered by a plan that provides important benefits. This publication explains some of those benefits and the services available to you as a member of our system, including:

  • Benefits you will receive at retirement if you meet the service and age requirements (service retirement benefits);
  • Benefits you may receive if you leave public service before you meet the age requirement for a service retirement benefit (vested retirement benefits);
  • Benefits you may receive if you become permanently disabled (disability retirement benefits); and
  • Benefits your beneficiary may receive if you die while working for a public employer or, if eligible, after you leave public employment (death benefits).

I am joined by a staff of dedicated professionals in my commitment to helping you make informed decisions about your future. I encourage you to contact us with any questions or suggestions you might have.

Sincerely,

Thomas P. DiNapoliState Comptroller
