Employer Reporting Basics

Who Can Join?

Any employee receiving salary from a participating employer may join NYSLRS. Regardless of whether an individual is full- or part-time, seasonal or permanent, temporary or provisional, if the individual is an employee, he or she can become a member. Both mandatory and optional members joining NYSLRS should complete a membership application, and the employer must register that employee with us. Please note: Individuals who are engaged as independent contractors are never eligible for membership.
