New York State NYS Retirement Loan
NYS Retirement Loan offers individuals access to a loan to help cover the cost of retirement. The amount of the loan depends on your income and marital status. Loans are available through participating banks and credit unions.
To qualify for a NYS Retirement Loan, you must:
-Be at least 50 years old
-Be a resident of New York State
-Be eligible for Social Security benefits or another kind of retirement income
-Not be in default on any other loans or credit obligations
The Retirement Loan is interest free for the first five years and then has a fixed interest rate of 3.9% per year. You have the option to pay off the loan over time or receive a lump sum payment. The maximum loan amount is $50,000.
How much can you borrow?
You may be able to borrow money from a retirement loan to help cover costs associated with your retirement, such as fees and expenses for participating in a 401k plan or other qualified retirement plan.
To be eligible for a retirement loan, you must be at least age 50 and have at least 10 years of credited service with the state or local government entity that issued the loan. You also must have an annual salary that is at least 150% of the poverty level (which is currently $22,050 for an individual). In order to qualify for a retirement loan, you will need to provide proof of your current income and credit history.
Minimum loan amount
The maximum loan amount that you may borrow under the Retirement Loan program is $100,000. The interest rate on this loan is fixed at 4%. You must also have an income of at least 120% of the Federal Poverty Level in order to qualify for a loan.
The Retirement Loan program allows borrowers to pay off their loan over time, which can result in a smaller overall payment. The repayment term for this loan is 20 years.
The best way to understand a New York State retirement loan is to think of it as a type of home equity loan. Unlike a traditional mortgage, you don’t need good credit to apply for a retirement loan. You can take out a loan up to 90% of the value of your home, and you don’t have to pay back the entire amount until you retire or sell your home.
To be eligible for a retirement loan, you must meet certain requirements including making enough money each year to cover your expected monthly expenses. You also need to be at least 55 years old and have lived in your home for at least two years before applying for the loan.
There are two types of retirement loans: fixed-rate and adjustable-rate loans. With a fixed-rate loan, the interest rate remains the same throughout the life of the loan, regardless of how much money is borrowed. With an adjustable-rate loan, the interest rate changes over time, based on an index that’s set by the Federal Reserve Bank.
Both types of loans require borrowers to make periodic payments based on their income and adjusted gross income (AGI). The initial payment on a fixed-rate retirement loan is typically higher than on an adjustable-rate loan, but over time those payments will be equalized.

If you are thinking about retirement planning, or if you are already retired and need to start putting money away for your future, you may want to consider a New York State retirement loan. There are several different options for repayment of these loans, so contact a retirement loan specialist to get the best fit for your situation.
The three main types of repayment for a New York State retirement loan are:
Fixed-term repayment: This is the default option and is usually the most popular. You pay back the entire loan amount over a set period of time, such as 15 years. Interest will be added to the total amount repaid, so this repayment option can be expensive if you don’t have enough money saved up. However, if you have enough money saved up and want to pay off your loan faster, this is the option for you.

Repayment plan with mixed monthly payments: This plan works better if you don’t have a lot of money saved up but want to repay your loan over time nonetheless. You make fixed monthly payments until all of your debt
When to apply for a retirement loan
There are a few things you need to know before applying for a retirement loan in New York State.
The first is that you must be at least 55 years old and have at least three years of contributions into your employee retirement savings plan (ERSP) or employer pension plan. Second, the loan must be used to purchase an annuity, which means that the repayment will continue after you die. Finally, if you’re using the loan to purchase an annuity, the interest rate on the loan is based on the Prime Rate plus 2%.
If all of these conditions are met, follow these steps:
1. Fill out Form T-459 and submit with your application paperwork. You’ll need to provide your Social Security number, date of birth, and other information required by the state comptroller.
2. Complete an Internal Revenue Service 1040EZ tax form if you’re single or married filing separately, or Form 1040A if you’re married filing jointly. This form can serve as your application for a retirement loan from your employer’s pension fund or ERSP account.
3. Contact your pension fund or ERSP administrator and ask about fees associated with retirement loans. These fees can vary significantly depending on your situation and Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation insurance coverage status (see below).
4. Complete a New York State Application for Retirement Loan (Form T-469) and submit along with Form T-459, IRS form 1040E
