BILL NUMBER:S5564

TITLE OF BILL: An act granting retroactive tier IV membership in the
New York state and local employees' retirement system to Brian
Stebbins

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this bill is to
authorize Brain Stebbins retroactive tier membership in Tier IV.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: Section one of this bill deems Brian
Stebbins a member of the retirement system as of the date he filed a
membership application, on August 1, 2003.

Section two provides that all past service costs will be borne by the
village of Green Island. Section three provides for an immediate
effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Brian Stebbins should be reinstated into Tier IV based
upon his membership application in the New York state and local
employees' retirement system, which was filed on August 1, 2003, but
for reasons not ascribable to his own negligence, the application was
not processed until March 15, 2012, therefore incorrectly placing him
in Tier VI.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: There is an immediate past service cost of
approximately $1,200 which will be borne by the village of Green
Island.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Effective immediately
