Your Member Annual Statement is a snapshot of your NYSLRS account, with information about your NYSLRS membership and benefits. It is based on the information we have on file for you as of March 31, 2022, the close of our fiscal year.
You can view your 2022 Statement now by signing into Retirement Online. (Reminder: Retiree Annual Statements were mailed at the end of February and are not available online.) From your Retirement Online Account Homepage, go to the ‘My Account Summary’ area, click the “View My Member Annual Statement” button and follow the steps to view, print or save your Statement. Don’t have an account? Register today.
Tier 5 and 6 Members: As of April 9, 2022, Tier 5 and 6 members only need five years of service credit to be vested. For these members, your Statement ending March 31, 2022 will not reflect this recent legislation. For example, for members who have between five and 10 years of service, your statement will still say that you are not yet vested. To learn about the impact of this new legislation and vesting status updates that will be coming to Retirement Online, please read our Becoming Vested blog post.
Delivery of Your Member Annual Statement
If you chose email delivery of your Statement, you should receive an email informing you that your Statement is ready to be viewed in Retirement Online. All other members will receive their 2022 Statement by mail before the end of June.
Get Up-to-Date Account Information Year Round
Your Member Annual Statement provides information as of March 31, 2022, but with Retirement Online you can access up-to-date information about your retirement account year round. It is also the fast, easy way to conduct business with NYSLRS. Here are some of the things you can do online:
Pension Estimates: Most members can create customized benefit estimates and calculate their pension payment options using Retirement Online. From your Account Homepage, scroll down to ‘My Account Summary’ and click the “Estimate my Pension Benefit” button. You can base your estimate on the salary and service information we have on file or adjust your earnings or service credit to account for possible increases in earnings or service credit purchases. By entering different retirement dates and beneficiaries, you will see how your choices affect your potential benefit. If you are not able to use the Retirement Online calculator, contact us for an estimate.
Employment History: You can view your recent employment history and reported earnings for the past five years in Retirement Online. From your Account Homepage, scroll down to ‘My Account Summary’ and click the “View My Recent Employment Summary” button. Think you may be eligible for past service that’s not included in your employment history? You can request to purchase service credit by returning to ‘My Account Summary’ and clicking the “Manage My Service Credit Purchases” button.
Contact Information Change: Did you move or change your email address recently? On your Account Homepage, in the ‘My Profile Information’ section, you can update your address and other contact information.
