BILL NUMBER:S2014

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
in relation to allowing Marion Hoffman to file a request for Tier I
status in the New York state and local police and fire retirement system
with the state comptroller

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To authorize Marion Hoffman to file a request for Tier I status in the
New York State and Local Police and Fire Retirement System.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Marion Hoffman has been employed with the New York State Department of
Environmental Conservation as an Environmental Conservation Officer
for approximately thirty-six years. For reasons not ascribable to her
own negligence, she did not become a member of the New York State and
Local Police and Fire Retirement System at the time of hiring.

JUSTIFICATION:
Marion Hoffman was hired on June 14, 1973, due to the temporary,
competitive classification of her appointment membership in the
retirement system was not mandatory, and thus her membership in the
retirement system did not take effect until the time her application
was received by the retirement system which was August 1, 1973.
Between those dates, Tier II status took effect and thus Ms. Hoffman
was granted Tier II status and not Tier I status.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.7574 of 2010: Referred to Civil Service & Pensions

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Increase of approximately $920 in the annual contributions of the State
of New York for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2012. In addition to
the annual contributions discussed above, there will be an immediate
past service cost of approximately $141,000 which will be borne by
the State of New York and all the participating employers in the New
York State and Local Police and Fire Retirement System.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
Immediately.

police  and fire retirement system, at the time of her hiring and who is
currently a Tier II member of the New York state and  local  police  and
