NYSLRS sends out 1099-R tax forms each year at the end of January. A 1099-R tax form is sent to you if you received taxable income from NYSLRS in the previous calendar year or if you had federal tax withheld from your benefit payments.
You can request a reprint of your most recent 1099-Rs by using our automated form. The automated form lets you request reprints from the three most recent years. (For earlier years, please contact us.) Reprints are not available while the most recent calendar year’s 1099-R forms are being distributed. Generally, you can request reprints for the most recent calendar year beginning in early February.
You must enter your name, phone number and retirement number into the form. If you do not provide this information, we will be unable to fulfill your request.
We will mail reprints to the address we had on file for you as of late December. If you moved after that date, please contact us to request a reprint. You can call 866‑805‑0990 or send your request using our secure contact form. If you use the secure contact form, please include your old address and the address you would like your 1099-R mailed to.
Coming In 2024 — Print Your Own 1099-R
If you receive a taxable retirement benefit from NYSLRS, you will be able to view your 1099-R tax form in Retirement Online starting in January 2024 (beginning with your 1099-R for your 2023 pension earnings).
Also, starting this summer, you’ll have the option to receive an email that will notify you when your 1099-R is ready to view in Retirement Online. From your account, you’ll be able to download and print the form rather than waiting to receive it in the mail. Whether you receive your 1099-R by mail or through email, you’ll be able to sign in to view and print it.
