TITLE OF BILL:
An act granting retroactive tier IV membership in the New York state
and local employees' retirement system to Tamara Hemminger
This bill authorizes Tamara Hemminger retroactive membership in Tier
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1: Authorizes Tamara Hemminger retroactive Tier IV membership
in the New York State and Local Employees' Retirement System deemed
effective on December 17, 2009.
Section 2: Provides the past service costs are to be borne by the
Section 3: Provides an immediate effective date.
Tamara Hemminger was employed by the Department of Labor as a labor
services representative on December 7, 2009. On December 17, 2009
Hemminger completed, signed, and dated the Article 15 Membership
Registration form and had it notarized. She subsequently submitted the
application to her employer.
Due to an administrative error, the application was not processed in
the usual manner and therefore not processed properly. The New York
State and Local Employees' Retirement System did not receive her
application until January 13, 2010. This gave her Tier V status. Had
the Department processed Hemminger's application in the usual manner
she would currently have Tier IV status in the retirement system.
This bill corrects the paperwork error and grants Hemminger the Tier
IV status she should have been granted upon the submission of her
If this bill were to be enacted in the 2012 Legislative Session it
would increase the yearly contributions for Hemminger's current
employer by $1,500. In addition there is a one-time past service cost
of $2,280, which would be borne by the State of New York
This act shall take effect immediately.

S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 7502 I N S E N A T E May 30, 2012 ___________ Introduced by Sen. NOZZOLIO -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Civil Service and Pensions AN ACT granting retroactive tier IV membership in the New York state and local employees' retirement system to Tamara Hemminger THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, Tamara Hemming- er, a member of the New York state and local employees' retirement system, who was employed on December 7, 2009, by the department of labor as a labor services representative, who filed a membership application in such system on December 17, 2009, which should have given her Tier IV status but for reasons not ascribable to her 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 system on December 17, 2009. S 2. Any past service costs incurred in implementing the provisions of this act shall be borne by the state. S 3. This act shall take effect immediately. FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50: This bill will deem Tamara Hemminger, currently an employee of the Canandaigua City School District and formerly an employee of the New York State Depart- ment of Labor, to have become a member of the New York State and Local Employees' Retirement System on December 17, 2009, thereby granting her Tier 4 status. If this legislation is enacted during the 2012 legislative session, we anticipate that there will be an increase of approximately $1,500 in the annual contributions of the Canandaigua City School District for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2013. In addition to the annual contributions discussed above, there will be an immediate past service cost of approximately $2,280, which would be borne by the State of New York as a one-time payment. This estimate is based on the assumption that payment would be made on March 1, 2013.
