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-
