TRS is one of the largest pension systems in the United States. We provide New York City educators with retirement,
disability, and death benefit services. In addition to our basic Qualified Pension Plan, we administer one of the largest
unified Section 403(b) Tax-Deferred Annuity Programs in the country.
TRS membership is available to educators who work for the New York City Department of Education, the City University of New York, or participating New York City Charter Schools. Overall, our programs serve approximately 195,000 in-service members, retirees, and beneficiaries.
Questions about Your 1099 Forms? Read Our Brochure!
In January TRS issued 1099 forms to individuals who received distributions from TRS in the previous year. Any 1099 forms you receive are needed for tax filing purposes and should be kept with your other tax records for the year.
For more information, be sure to consult our
1099 Forms brochure, which answers many common questions about how to read the forms, how reported distributions are taxed, and how to obtain duplicate forms. If you have specific questions about your forms, you may wish to consult with your tax advisor.
As a reminder, you can log into the secure area of our website and view the 1099 forms for lump-sum distributions you've received from TRS in the past three years.
