Ready to retire? If so, we’ve got just what you crave.
You’ll find everything you need to know about the NYSTRS retirement process on our new, easy-to-use Ready to Retire page. It’s accessible from the Retirement Planning and Active Members tabs.
The information, publications and videos found there will help you fully prepare for this major life event. From what to do early in the process to what to expect after you file, the page is loaded with helpful resources and tools that will put you at ease as you navigate the retirement path. For example, you’ll find information on selecting the benefit payment best for you, filing your retirement application and how your first monthly payment is calculated.
Something the information on the Ready to Retire page does not do, however, is replace the need for you to schedule a benefit consultation with one of our information representatives. This should be a critical piece of the retirement process for you. We also urge you to attend one of our Pension & Retirement Education Program (PREP) seminars. Instructions on how to schedule both are found on this new page.
