If you return to work after retiring from NYSTRS, be aware it could impact your NYSTRS benefit.
The cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) for September 2023 through August 2024 benefit payments is 2.5%.
Your retirement benefit is subject to federal income tax (except for previously taxed contributions) but is exempt from New York State income tax.
