A Message From Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli

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 services available to you as a member of our system, including:

  • Service retirement benefits you may receive, if you meet the service and age requirements;
  • Disability retirement benefits you may receive, if you become permanently disabled;
  • Death benefits your beneficiary may receive, if you die while working for a public employer or, if eligible, after you leave public employment; and
  • Vested retirement benefits you may receive, if you leave public service before you meet the requirements for a service retirement benefit.

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.

Thomas P. DiNapoli
State Comptroller
