MyNYSTRS Refreshed and Improved


If you have a MyNYSTRS account but haven’t logged in recently, it will look much different when you do.

MyNYSTRS is a secure online portal available exclusively to NYSTRS members. The area was recently refreshed with a new, more modern design so it looks good and works smoothly on any device – including your cell phone and tablet.

Unlike the old design, which could be difficult to navigate on mobile devices, the new MyNYSTRS is easy to use, no matter how big or small your screen. Navigation is streamlined and more intuitive, and the text is easier to read. Watch the video "New MyNYSTRS vs. Old MyNYSTRS" to see how the site has changed for the better.

Some 175,000 members have MyNYSTRS accounts and enjoy the ability to:

  • Review salary, service credit, contributions, and beneficiary information. 
  • Calculate estimated pensions. 
  • Manage/update contact information and e-subscribe to NYSTRS publications.
  • Send a secure message to NYSTRS.
  • Schedule a consultation with a NYSTRS representative or register for a PREP seminar.
  • Apply for a service retirement and track the processing of the application.
  • Calculate loan estimates and apply for a loan. 
  • File a prior service claim.
  • View and print their annual Profile membership statement.
  • Change direct deposit information and W-4P withholding election.

Having a MyNYSTRS account not only provides convenience, it actually enhances the security of your private information. Creating an account ensures an imposter cannot create one using your credentials. Also, because last login date and time are displayed, you would be able to identify and immediately report any suspicious activity.

To create an account, visit our Register page and follow the step-by-step instructions given. Have both your seven-digit NYSTRS EmplID (found on your Benefit Profile and all official correspondence you receive from NYSTRS) and the last four digits of your Social Security number handy before you begin.

You’ll create a username, password, and an identity verification phrase – all designed to provide multiple layers of security to guarantee you are the only one able to access your account.
