AN ACT to authorize the widow of Barry Liebowitz to file  a  retroactive
  application  for  retirement with the New York state and local employ-
  ees' retirement system

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Notwithstanding  the provisions of any general or special
law, rule or regulation to the contrary, Barry Liebowitz, who  was  last
employed by the New York state energy research and development authority
as  a  senior  project  manager,  shall be deemed eligible for a service
retirement benefit effective June 17,  2013,  notwithstanding  the  fact
that  he  died on June 17, 2013. Within one year from the effective date
of this act, Marilyn Liebowitz, the widow of Barry Liebowitz,  may  file
with  the  retirement system an application for service retirement bene-
fits on behalf of Barry Liebowitz with an effective date  of  retirement
of June 17, 2013 and an option election form electing to receive retire-
ment benefits pursuant to the terms of the joint allowance - full option
with  Marilyn  Liebowitz  as  the  beneficiary.  The filing of a service
retirement application will constitute a waiver of any rights  or  bene-
fits to the ordinary death benefit payable upon the death of a member in
service  pursuant  to  sections five hundred eight or six hundred six of
the retirement and social security law. Any amounts paid by the  retire-
ment system to Barry Liebowitz, his estate or to Marilyn Liebowitz prior
to  the  filing  of  the  application  for  service  retirement shall be
deducted from the benefit payable thereafter.
  S 2. Any additional costs for this act shall be paid by the  state  of
New York.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--This bill would deem Barry Liebowitz eligible to receive
a service retirement benefit effective on June 17, 2013, notwithstanding
the  fact  that  he  died  on  June 17, 2013. Marilyn Liebowitz shall be
authorized to file for the service retirement  benefit  on  his  behalf.
