BILL NUMBER:S2014B

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 was 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, 1971.
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 and Pensions

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
There will be an immediate past service cost of approximately
$143,000 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.
