You must inform NYSLRS of any retroactive payments paid to members who already are receiving retirement benefits or disability benefits, or for whom we have paid a death benefit. You must inform us in writing. This cannot be included in your monthly report. Your letter should include the member’s name, NYSLRS ID, Social Security number, the payment amount and the time period covered by the retroactive payment. Send your letter to the Recalculation Unit in our Benefit Calculation and Disbursement Services Bureau.
