Disability Retirement Kits


Disability Retirement Kits

Members with a registered MyNYCERS account can log in to apply for Disability Retirement online instead of submitting a paper application.

If you wish to file a paper application for Disability Retirement, locate your Tier below and download the corresponding Disability Kit. Each Kit contains detailed instructions together with all the necessary forms and documents needed to file for Disability. Individual forms can be downloaded by clicking the “Show Contents” tab.
