Get Ready for New Reporting — Silver Certification

Silver Certification is the second step to prepare your organization to use Retirement Online for reporting and member enrollment. To achieve Silver Certification, employers must first complete Bronze certification and then complete online training through webinars and self-paced courses. The deadline to complete your Silver Certification is August 31. For more information regarding the certification process see our State Certification and Local Certification checklists.

Salary Listing and PYA Coming

The Salary Listing and Prior Years’ Adjustments (PYA) report is a record of days worked and earnings you reported for your employees who were NYSLRS members during fiscal year ending March 31, 2018. Each year near the end of June, NYSLRS provides this information for you to review online. Our Employer Billing Unit will email you when the online application is available.

Hiring Seasonal Employees

As an employer, sometimes it makes sense to hire employees only during certain periods of the year, perhaps for outdoor work during the summer, or for snow removal in the winter. Remember that you are obligated by law to notify all employees of their right to join the Retirement System, and that all new and returning employees must complete a membership application to become members of NYSLRS. Review our Membership Basics — Registration Process webpage for tips on how to register.
