      You can change the amount of your federal withholding by completing and submitting a W-4P form.

      If you prefer to have a copy mailed to you, you can request the form from our automated phone line by calling 1-866-805-0990 (or 518-474-7736 in the Albany, New York area), pressing 2, then following the prompts.

      Retirement Online is the easiest way to check your current withholding amount. If you don’t already have an account, go to the Sign In page and click the “Sign Up” link under the Customer Sign In button. You can also get that information using the automated phone line described above.

      After you submit your W-4P form, NYSLRS will calculate your withholding amount based on the information you provide and current federal tax tables. To estimate how much will be withheld from your pension each month, you can use our federal tax withholding calculator.
