Benefits Consultations

Schedule | Making a Reservation | Directions to Sites

One-on-one consultations – open to all members – enable you to ask questions about your specific situation and receive printed estimates of your retirement benefits. You can meet with a representative either in person or through interactive video.

Our video consultations allow live, face-to-face communication with a representative at NYSTRS headquarters in Albany via video conference.  It's as easy as watching TV and using a telephone. There's even a printer that will print your estimate for you at the site.  The only thing we can't do is shake your hand.

Below is the 2013-14 school year schedule of consultations. You may also print the schedule poster.

Making a Reservation

There are two ways to book a NYSTRS consultation:

  1. Online using your MyNYSTRS account. After logging into your account, select the "My Tools" tab and then "Schedule Appointments."
  2. By calling NYSTRS at (800) 348-7298, Ext. 6100.

In either case, you can generally book appointments up to three months in advance.

Please be sure to bring the following items to your consultation:

  • A picture ID (to ensure confidentiality);
  • Your most-recent and current salaries by school year (as well as future earnings if projections are desired);
  • Any questions you have about NYSTRS benefits. Reviewing your latest Benefit Profile can be helpful in this regard; and,
  • If your membership date is before June 17, 1971, information about local incentives or payments for unused sick days.
