BILL NUMBER:S3924

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.

Pensions - Died

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: See fiscal note

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
