Benefits Consultations at Your Convenience: NYSTRS is introducing a new feature for our benefit consultations program. You will now be able to meet with a System representative from your own computer, laptop or device. This provides you with more flexibility while you review the retirement process and receive personalized benefit estimates. In this session, we walk you through this new type of consultation in real time, and you may learn some important benefits tips along the way.
Protecting Against Fraud: This year’s nationwide unemployment claim scam was just another in a growing list of fraud attempts against Americans. At NYSTRS, keeping our members’ personal information secure is a top priority. In this session, we highlighted the many measures we take to ensure data protection and online security. In addition, we discussed steps you can take to keep your information safe. (Download presentation slides)
