Print NYSTRS forms. Call our Hotline at (800) 782-0289 to request forms be mailed to you.
Important COVID-19 Note: Because the majority of NYSTRS staff are telecommuting until further notice, the processing of some forms will likely be delayed. We are prioritizing transactions such as pension payments, direct deposit changes, disability retirements, death benefits and loans. Whenever possible, please file forms through your MyNYSTRS account.
