Planning for Retirement

It’s never too early to plan for your retirement, so why not start now? In this section you will find tools and information to help you set goals and plan for a secure, comfortable life after you retire.


Pension Seminars

NYCERS holds regularly scheduled pre-retirement pension seminars, where experts lead you through a step-by-step tutorial of your plan provisions, followed by a question-and-answer period.

Each seminar targets a different audience, so be sure to contact your agency to find out when you may attend. All reservations are taken on a group basis through each agency’s benefit coordinator or Human Resources representative.

Benefit Coordinators: To request a seminar, please contact
