Your Invoice is Available

Your invoice of employer contributions owed for the State fiscal year ending 2019 is now available. The invoice shows the amount due on February 1, 2019 as well as the optional discounted amount if you choose to prepay by Monday, December 17, 2018. Because the usual deadline to receive a prepayment discount, December 15, falls on a Saturday, payments made electronically or sent by certified mail with a postmark date on or before December 17, 2018 will be accepted as the discounted payment this year. Visit our Invoice Overview page if you have any questions.

Uploading Lump Sum Form in Retirement Online

In order for NYSLRS to finalize your employee’s retirement benefit, most employers will need to complete a Statement of Accrued Payments and Leave Credits (RS6221) form (Lump Sum form) and submit it to NYSLRS. Employer contacts who have the Personnel security role can now upload this form using Retirement Online. This new feature will save time by eliminating the need to send forms through the mail. If NYSLRS needs a Lump Sum form completed for a retiring employee, we will send one to you on or around your employee’s retirement date. For more information, see page 8-3 of the Employer’s Guide.

Silver Certification Video

Congratulations to the more than 1,800 employers who have achieved Silver Certification, a major step in order to be ready to begin reporting with Retirement Online in the spring of 2019. If you are a local employer who still needs to receive your Silver Certification for Retirement Online, be sure to check out our video, How to Get Silver Certified. You will see just how easy it is to complete the training courses needed to achieve your Silver certification.

A New Look for the NYSLRS Website

Sometime early next year, you will see some changes to the NYSLRS website. Our goal is to make it easier for you to find the information you need to do business with NYSLRS. Stay tuned for our new look.
