AN  ACT  to amend the retirement and social security law, in relation to
  accidental disability retirement  for  uniformed  court  officers  and
  peace officers employed in the unified court system

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

  Section 1. Subdivision a of section 605-a of the retirement and social
security law, as amended by chapter 489 of the laws of 2008, is  amended
to read as follows:
  a.  A member employed as a uniformed court officer or peace officer in
the unified court system shall be entitled to an  accidental  disability
retirement allowance if, at the time application therefor is filed, such
member is:
  1. Physically or mentally incapacitated for performance of duty as the
natural  and  proximate  result of an accident, not caused by his OR HER
own willful negligence, sustained in such service and while  actually  a
member of the retirement system; and
  2.  Actually  in  service  upon  which his or her membership is based.
However, in a case where a member is discontinued  from  service  subse-
quent to the accident, either voluntarily or involuntarily, and provided
that the member meets the requirements of paragraph one of this subdivi-
sion,  application  may  be made either (a) by a vested member incapaci-
tated 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.
  FOR PURPOSES OF THIS SUBDIVISION, A  MEMBER  WHO  IS  INJURED  AS  THE
RESULT  OF A PHYSICAL ASSAULT BY AN ASSAILANT, SUFFERED WHILE IN SERVICE
SHALL BE ENTITLED TO ACCIDENTAL DISABILITY RETIREMENT UNLESS THE CONTRA-
RY CAN BE PROVEN BY COMPETENT EVIDENCE UNDER THIS SECTION.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD07905-02-9
