BILL NUMBER:S3924A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize Domingo Cabrera to file a
retroactive application for retirement with the New York state
teachers' retirement system

PURPOSE:

This bill would allow Domingo Cabrera to receive retirement benefits
from the New York State Teachers' Retirement System.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section I. Domingo Cabrera suffers from mental illness and ended
employment on January 1, 2009. This bill deems Domingo applied to the
New York State Teachers' Retirement System for disability retirement
benefits within 30 days of ending employment on January 1, 2009. This
would negate the day he officially applied to the New York State
Teachers' Retirement System for retirement benefits, May 19, 2011.

Section II. The costs incurred in implementing this act will be borne
by the New York State Teachers' Retirement System.

JUSTIFICATION:

Domingo Cabrera is unable to work due to his mental illness. Due to
his mental illness, Domingo Cabrera did not file for retirement
benefits within 30 days of ending his employment on January 1, 2009.
Domingo Cabrera is unable to be a self-sustaining member of society
without receiving retroactive benefits offered by the New York State
Teachers' Retirement System's retirement benefits. It is necessary
for Domingo Cabrera to receive retroactive retirement benefits because
these monetary benefits will allow Cabrera to be a sustaining member
of society.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

2012 - S.6803/A.9712 - Civil Service and Pensions - Died

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

See fiscal note

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
