AN ACT to amend chapter 735 of the laws of 2006, amending the retirement
and social security law relating to permitting certain members of the
New York state and local police and fire retirement system to receive
a partial lump sum distribution upon retirement, in relation to the
THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
Section 1. Section 2 of chapter 735 of the laws of 2006, amending the
retirement and social security law relating to permitting certain
members of the New York state and local police and fire retirement
system to receive a partial lump sum distribution upon retirement, is
amended to read as follows:
S 2. This act shall take effect April 1, 2008 [and shall expire April
1, 2013 when upon such date the provisions of this act shall be deemed
S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
This bill will repeal the expiration date of April 1, 2013 from
Section 2 of Chapter 735 of the laws of 2006, thereby making the Partial
Lump Sum option permanent for members of the New York State and Local
Police and Fire System.
If this legislation is enacted during the 2012 legislative session, we
anticipate that there will not be costs for the lump sum payments made
on and after April 1, 2013 since the payments are determined on an actu-
arially equivalent basis.
