New York State Teachers' Retirement System (NYSTRS)

No matter how far along you are in your career, careful financial and retirement planning are critical.  NYSTRS’ Pension & Retirement Education Program (PREP) is designed to help members of all ages accomplish that.  Members can tailor PREP to fit their needs by attending an entire seminar (8:30 am - 3:30 pm) or just those modules that help them the most: NYSTRS benefits; financial planning; Social Security; estate planning; retirement—a new beginning; and the retirement process.

PREP seminars are free, and sessions are held throughout the year across the state. The schedule is available on the Retirement Planning > Pension & Retirement Education Program page of the NYSTRS website.

Retirement benefit consultations help you see the impact of reaching key service milestone; review your benefit payment options at retirement; and receive personalized benefit estimates.  Consultations are conducted by phone, personal device video which allow you to meet with a NYSTRS representative securely online using your own personal computer, smartphone or tablet.
