AN ACT to amend the retirement and social security law, in  relation  to
  extending  the  filing deadline for active and retired firefighters to
  file for accidental disability retirement for certain injuries

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

  Section  1. Paragraph 2 of subdivision a of section 363 of the retire-
ment and social security law, as amended by chapter 489 of the  laws  of
2008, is amended to read as follows:
  2. Actually in service upon which his membership is based. However, in
a  case  where  a  member is discontinued from service subsequent to the
accident, either voluntarily or involuntarily,  and  provided  that  the
member  meets  the  requirements  of  paragraph one of this subdivision,
application may be made, either (a) by a vested member incapacitated  as
the  result  of  a qualifying World Trade Center condition as defined in
section two of this chapter at any time, or (b) not later than two years
after the member is first discontinued from service.  PROVIDED, FURTHER,
HOWEVER, THAT IN THE CASE OF AN APPLICATION FILED FOR  ACCIDENTAL  DISA-
BILITY  BENEFITS PURSUANT TO SECTION THREE HUNDRED SIXTY-THREE-D OF THIS
TITLE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR FILING FOR SUCH BENEFIT SHALL BE FIVE YEARS.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately and apply to all  applica-
tions filed on or after such effective date.
  FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant To Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill would extend the filing deadline from 2 years to 5 years for
active  and  retired firefighters in the New York State and Local Police
and Fire Retirement System to file an application for  accidental  disa-
bility retirement due to certain cancers.
  If this bill is enacted, the cost would depend on age, service, salary
and  plan  of  the affected firefighters, as well as whether such person
would have otherwise been eligible for, or has been receiving  an  ordi-
nary  disability,  a performance of duty disability or a service retire-
ment.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
