Getting Certified for Local & Municipal Employers
We want to make sure your organization has the training and support it needs to use Retirement Online for reporting and member enrollment. Completing the certification process will ensure your organization is prepared to take advantage of the improvements offered in Retirement Online. NYSLRS will provide support for you every step of the way.
Employers must complete three certification levels to use Retirement Online: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
|Certification Levels||Requirements to Complete||What You Can Do|
Interactive training is a crucial part of Silver and Gold Certification. The following kinds of training are available to you:
- Virtual instructor-led training — webinars where instructors take you through the training step by step
- Self-paced training — online courses you can take on your own
You’ll also receive access to a dedicated training environment. In the training environment, you will have hands-on practice doing the reporting and enrollment tasks you’ll perform in Retirement Online. Based on the security roles you assign, our training team will reach out to your employer contacts to schedule your hands-on session.
