AN  ACT to authorize the designated beneficiary or beneficiaries of John
  E.  Johnson to receive a death benefit equal to three times his salary
  without reduction based on mortality

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, the
beneficiary or beneficiaries of John E. Johnson, who was a member of the
New York  state and local employees' retirement system and was  employed
by  the county of Clinton upon his death on February 18, 2004 at the age
of 66 years, shall be entitled to receive a death benefit equal to  such
member's  salary  multiplied  by  three,  plus  the member's accumulated
contributions, if, on or before December 31, 2011, such  beneficiary  or
beneficiaries  shall  file  an application therefor with the state comp-
troller.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--This bill will entitle the estate of John E. Johnson,  a
former employee of the State of New York as well as Clinton County, to a
death  benefit  of  three  times  salary, plus Mr. Johnson's accumulated
contributions, without any reduction for age.
  If this bill were enacted, we anticipate that there will be an immedi-
ate past service cost of approximately $107,000, which will be shared by
the State of New York and all the participating  employers  of  the  New
York State and Local Employees' Retirement System.
  This  estimate,  dated  February  3,  2011,  and intended for use only
during the 2011  Legislative  Session,  is  Fiscal  Note  No.  2011-104,
prepared  by  the  Actuary  for  the New York State and Local Employees'
Retirement System.
