What Every Employer Should Know


Messaging for Employers

See our COVID-19 Guidance for Employers page for important information about how the COVID-19 emergency may affect your monthly reporting.

To protect the health of our members and employees, Retirement System consultation offices are closed until further notice. To schedule a phone consultation, and for all other inquiries, your employees can contact us at 1-866-805-0990; 518-474-7736 in the Albany, NY area. However, we strongly encourage members to use Retirement Online to do business with NYSLRS at this time.

Maybe you’re a long-standing employer looking to brush up on the basics of Retirement System participation. Maybe you’re new to your employer role and want a quick overview of the Retirement System topics you’ll need to be aware of in your new job. Or maybe you’re considering becoming a participating employer in the System and want to know how your decision is going to affect you. Whatever your circumstances are, we believe the information contained in this presentation will help give you a broader understanding of the Retirement System and what it means to participate as an employer.

If you already participate and have questions about your Retirement System-related work, please refer to the Employer’s Guide.

Our ongoing goal is to build a partnership with you that will best serve our common interests. We hope this web presentation furthers that goal.
