About Retirement OnlineRetirement Online is our new system that will make working with NYSLRS easier and more convenient. The new tools we’re introducing will streamline your work with the Retirement System — and everything you need will be a click away. NYSLRS members will benefit, and so will you.




Coming May 2019

Starting next Spring, Retirement Online will help you:

  • Easily enroll new members
  • Report information about your employees
  • Simply report employees’ days worked, earnings, and job information
  • Process and change deductions more timely and accurately
  • Receive timely notifications of deficiencies, overpayments and improper withholdings
  • View new hire information and contribution rates
  • View historical reporting data
  • Review employer reporting financial transactions

These improvements will be available to all employers. We encourage you to take our training and get certified sooner so you can take advantage of these new features. NYSLRS will provide support for you every step of the way. Once certified, there will be many opportunities to practice and refresh your skills before the upgrades are live.
