Welcome Active Members

You are dedicated to educating students and helping them prepare for the future. At NYSTRS, we are dedicated to educating you on the value of NYSTRS membership and ensuring you are prepared when it is time to retire.

Our goal is to anticipate your questions and needs, and to provide thorough and timely service throughout your career. Clear communication is key. We want to be sure you have all the facts necessary to make informed decisions about your NYSTRS benefits at each stage of life.

The Retirement System provides a host of informational resources and services to help you better understand your benefits and to aid in your retirement planning. You will find such information in this section of our website.

Meanwhile, the Active Members' Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of NYSTRS' benefits. We encourage you to visit our library for a host of other publications and resources, and also review our Membership FAQs for answers to many common questions.
