was employed on August 13, 2009, by the Department of Taxation and
Finance as a temporary Tax Information Aid, who filed a membership
application in such system on December 17, 2009, which should have given
him Tier IV status but for reasons not ascribable to his own negligence
and due to an administrative error, the application was not processed in
the usual manner and therefore not processed, may be deemed to have
become a member of the New York state and local employees' retirement
