Retirement Member Annual Statements and Retirement Online

This announcement provides important information for employees regarding the New York State Retirement Member Annual Statements and the new Retirement Online self-service tool from the New York State and Local Retirement System (NYSLRS).

Retirement Member Annual Statements for 2017

The distribution of the NYSLRS Member Annual Statements is expected to begin mid-May and continue through mid-July. This year Member Annual Statements will be mailed directly to the employee’s home address on file with NYSLRS. To ensure you receive your statement and other retirement correspondence, you should visit the Retirement Online website to verify/update your address. It is important to know that the NYSLRS contact information is maintained independently from other human resource systems.

If corrections are needed to your NYSLRS contact information, please also verify that the address on your paycheck or advice is correct and if not, submit a Personal Data Change Form to the BSC to update this information in other systems. Personal Data Change Forms can be sent to the BSC by e-mail or by mail to: BSC Personnel Administration, 1220 Washington Avenue, Building 5, Floor 4, Albany, NY 12226-1900.

BSC staff will update your personnel records including your paycheck and health insurance records.
