Forms & Publications
For paper applications, you may download all the necessary Service Retirement forms at once by downloading a retirement kit below. When you are ready to retire, NYCERS strongly encourages you to make an appointment for a telephone consultation with a NYCERS Retirement Counselor.
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.
Each Summary Plan Description (SPD) booklet is a complete guide to your retirement plan and its provisions and benefits. The information is derived from applicable laws and rules that govern membership in each plan. Since these laws and rules can change, information may need to be amended from time to time. Where changes occur, an SPD Update accompanies the booklet, describing the relevant changes.
