BILL NUMBER:S4124 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the retirement and social security law, in relation to providing credit to members of public retirement systems of the state for military service; and making an appropriation therefor PURPOSE: To extend the Military Service Credit Law of 2000 to all veterans who honorably served in the military. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one amends section 1000 of the retirement and social services law, as added by chapter 548 of the laws of 2000 and subdivision 9 as added by chapter 547 of the laws of 2002, by deleting the specified periods of time in which military service would had to have been rendered in order to receive up to three years of service credit. Such specified periods currently prevent a person who served in the military, outside such periods, from obtaining service credit when applying to a public retirement system of the state. This section also deletes other restricting dates. Section two provides the appropriation necessary for the legislation.
