Pension Seminars

Members should contact their agency’s Benefit Coordinator or Human Resources Representative for information about pension seminars. For all other inquiries about your NYCERS pension, please call NYCERS at (347) 643-3000 or visit our Client Services Center located at 340 Jay Street (Mezzanine Level), Brooklyn, NY.

NYCERS hosts a Comprehensive Pre-Retirement Pension Seminar each quarter.

These quarterly seminars target:

  • Tier 4 members currently eligible to retire, or
  • Tier 4 members who are within two years of the retirement eligibility requirements of the plan in which they are enrolled.

NYCERS informs agency Benefit Coordinators or Human Resource Representatives of the date(s) of the upcoming Comprehensive Pre-Retirement Planning Seminars. Agency representatives will invite members employed in their agency to attend a specific event at NYCERS’ headquarters.

Off-Site Seminars

Benefit Coordinators only: To request a seminar at your agency’s location, please contact at least 30 days in advance of the proposed date of your event. NYCERS will reply to you within 5 business days of receiving your request.
