NYSED OP Launches PIN Online Retrieval Service

The New York State Education Department (NYSED) Office of the Professions (OP) has implemented a PIN (Personal Identification Number) retrieval service for online registration renewals.  PINs are unique to each license and registration period and are required for renewing a registration on OP's online renewal service.  Generally, these PINs are mailed or e-mailed to each licensee 4 months prior to their registration expiring.  If this information was not received or was misplaced, this online retrieval service can assist you with obtaining your specific PIN.  Below is the information required for PIN retrieval.  
  • Profession
  • License number
  • Date of birth
  • Last 4 digits of your Social Security number
If you do not have a Social Security number, you will need to contact OP customer service at: or 518-474-3817 ext. 570, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m.–4:45 p.m., and include your profession, license number, and date of birth.  You can retrieve a PIN for re-registration here.
