Beware of Scam Messages Targeting Retirees

Scammers are targeting NYSLRS retirees with text messages and other communications asking for a payment to "upgrade" the pension fund. These fraudulent messages do not come from NYSLRS or the Office of the State Comptroller. If you have received such a message, report it immediately to the FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov or the OSC fraud hotline at 1-888-672-4555. Read more.

Retirement benefits are paid monthly. See our Guide for Retirees for more information about your benefits.

If your benefit is paid by direct deposit:

You will have access to your retirement benefit on the last business day of each month (indicated by an “E” on the schedule.)

Visit our Contact Us page to find out how to change your direct deposit information.

If your benefit is paid by check:

Your retirement benefit check will be mailed on the second-to-last business day of each month for that month (indicated by an “M” on the schedule below).

If you haven’t received your check by the eighth of the following month, or if you received your check and it was lost or stolen, Contact Us. If you email us, be sure to include your daytime telephone number with area code so we can call you.

Our Direct Deposit Program enables you to receive your retirement benefits quickly and safely. To enroll, complete a Direct Deposit Application (RS6370) and submit it to NYSLRS.
