BILL NUMBER:S469

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
relating to a waiver of earnings limitation for certain retirees of the
New York state and local police and fire retirement system who are
employed by the state university

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
Permits retired police officers to re-enter public service for the
state university of New York or a community college under the program
of the State University of New York.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of this legislation removes the earning limits on members of
the NYS policemen's and firemen's retirement system who retire and
are employed by the state university of New York or a state
university community college.

JUSTIFICATION:
Unlike New York's public employee retirees, private sector and non New
York public retirees are not restricted in the amount of earnings
they can receive if they choose to return to New York public
employment after retirement. New York public service retirees must be
granted a waiver pursuant to Section 211 of the Retirement and Social
Security Law in order to earn over $30,000 per year or be subject to
a reduction in their retirement benefits. Currently, there are
numerous New York retirees who are valuable law enforcement personnel
who are essential members of the faculty and instructors in the areas
of criminal justice and law enforcement, and contribute to the public
safety on SUNY's college campuses.

Enactment of this legislation will dramatically broaden the pool of
eligible candidates for community colleges in the teaching faculty,
and director of public safety. This will contribute greatly to
educational and security of the campuses of the State University of
New York.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This bill was previously introduced in 2010
(S.8035) and 2011 (S.3440) with Assemblyman Zebrowski.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Nominal.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
January 1, 2014.
