TITLE OF BILL:
granting retroactive tier IV membership in the New York state and local
employees' retirement system to Sarah Fish
This bill would grant Sarah Fish retroactive tier IV membership in the
New York state and local employees' retirement system.
SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of this bill changes Ms. Fish's effective membership date in
the New York state and local employees' retirement system from
January 4, 2010 to December 28, 2009 so she may be correctly placed
in the Tier IV retirement group. She shall file with the state
comptroller a written request to this effect, upon the granting of
such retroactive membership, Sarah Fish will not be granted a refund
of any employee contribution made by hex to the system.
Section 2 describes who is responsible for any past cost incurred in
implementing the provisions of this act.
Section 3 states this bill shall take effect immediately.
Sarah Fish, began working as a staff social worker for the County of
Madison on December 28, 2009, which would have entitled her to Tier
IV membership in the New York state and local employees' retirement
system. However, Ms. Fish's application to the New York state and
local employees' retirement system was not stamped "received" by
Madison County Personnel until January 4, 2010, despite the fact it
was notarized on December 28, 2009.
Madison County personnel has acknowledged the lapse, attributing it to
an over sight on their part. However, as a result, Ms. Fish was
placed in the fifth tier instead of the fourth tier of the New York
state and local employees' retirement system. The late filing was due
to a clerical error on the part of Madison County and not due to an
error on the part of Ms. Fish. She should not be penalized for the
This bill, if enacted into law would correct the mistake by allowing
Sarah Fish to file for retroactive membership in the New York State
and Local Employees' retirement system as of December 28, 2009, the
actual start day of her employment with Madison County.
