NYC School Pensions Added To SeeThroughNY

| Press Releases

Pension payments to 78,523 New York City public school and City University of New York retirees were added today to SeeThroughNY, the Empire Center’s transparency website.

The data from the New York City Teachers’ Retirement System (NYCTRS) show that the 1,013 teachers and school professionals who retired during 2014 with at least 30 years of service credit collected pensions that averaged $70,702 during 2015.

The data were made public thanks to the Empire Center’s successful court challenge against efforts by pension funds to conceal information from taxpayers. The Center remains involved in litigation to protect and expand the public’s ability to examine public pensions.
