AN  ACT  to amend the retirement and social security law, in relation to
  accidental disability retirement for deputy sheriffs

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

  Section  1. Paragraph 3 of subdivision e of section 556 of the retire-
ment and social security law, as added by chapter 165  of  the  laws  of
1995, is amended to read as follows:
  3.  A  pension  of  two-thirds  of  his  or  her final average salary;
PROVIDED, HOWEVER, A DEPUTY SHERIFF SHALL RECEIVE A  PENSION  OF  THREE-
QUARTERS  OF  HIS  OR HER FINAL AVERAGE SALARY IF SUCH DEPUTY SHERIFF IS
EMPLOYED BY AN EMPLOYER THAT HAS ELECTED  TO  PROVIDE  SUCH  BENEFIT  TO
DEPUTY  SHERIFFS.  The  payment  of such pension shall be subject to the
provisions of section three hundred sixty-four of this chapter.
  § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
  FISCAL NOTE.-- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
  This bill would allow employers who have elected Article 14-B  of  the
Retirement and Social Security Law to elect to provide an improved acci-
dental  disability pension to deputy sheriffs in their employ. The bene-
fit for an accidental disability would be 75% of  final  average  salary
minus worker's compensation. The current benefit is 2/3 of final average
salary minus worker's compensation.
  If this bill is enacted, the estimated increase in the annual contrib-
utions  of  electing  counties for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019
would be 0.3% of the compensation of their deputy sheriffs.
  In addition to the annual contributions discussed above, there will be
a past service cost of 1.0% of the compensation of such deputy  sheriffs
which  will  be paid by such counties as a one-time payment.  This esti-
mate is based on the assumption that payment will be made on February 1,
2019.
  Summary of relevant resources:
  The membership data used in  measuring  the  impact  of  the  proposed
change  was  the same as that used in the March 31, 2017 actuarial valu-
