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

  Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary,
the  application  for disability retirement benefits of James O'Connell,
who was employed as principal by the Port Jervis  city  school  district
and  a  member  of  the  New York state teachers' retirement system, who
ceased his employment with the  Port  Jervis  city  school  district  on
August  31,  2008, and who, for reasons not ascribable to his own negli-
gence, did not apply to the New York state teachers'  retirement  system
for  disability  retirement  benefits until September 14, 2009, shall be
deemed to have applied to the New York state teachers' retirement system
for disability retirement benefits within 30 days of his ceasing  to  be
employed on August 31, 2008.
  S  2.  All  costs incurred in implementing the provisions of this act,
shall be borne by the New York state teachers' retirement system.
  S 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill concerns James O'Connell, a vested member of  the  New  York
State Teachers' Retirement System who ceased his employment as a teacher
with  the  Port  Jervis City School District on August 31, 2008, and did
not apply for disability retirement benefits until September  14,  2009,
after the 12 month deadline to apply for disability had lapsed. He shall
be  deemed  to have applied for disability retirement benefits within 30
days of ceasing his employment on August 31, 2008. Currently as a vested
member Mr. O'Connell  is  eligible  for  a  service  retirement  benefit
commencing at age 55.

of  liabilities, which is estimated to be $270,000. This cost is contin-
gent upon the approval of James O'Connell's application  for  disability
