S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 8602 I N A S S E M B L Y January 10, 2022 ___________ Introduced by M. of A. RA -- read once and referred to the Committee on Governmental Employees AN ACT authorizing the widow of Robert A. Serroen to change his retire- ment option THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, Gina M. Serroen, the widow of Robert A. Serroen, who was employed by the Nassau County Sheriff's Department and was retired from the New York state and local employees' retirement system effective December 17, 2011, and for reasons not ascribable to his own negligence failed to change his retirement option selection prior to the expiration of thirty days following the date of payability of his retirement allowance, shall be authorized to file such option election form on behalf of her deceased husband to a joint allowance full option, if within one year from the effective date of this act, she files a written request to that effect with the state comptroller. § 2. The costs associated with implementing the provisions of this act shall be borne by the County of Nassau. § 3. This act shall take effect immediately and shall be deemed to have been in full force and effect on and after such date. FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50: This bill would allow Gina M. Serroen to file a new option election form on behalf of her deceased husband, Robert A. Serroen, changing the retirement option election to a joint allowance full. Robert A. Serroen retired on December 17, 2011 and died on May 12, 2013. The joint allow- ance full election will be deemed to have been in effect on the date of retirement. If this bill is enacted during the 2022 legislative session, and a new option election form filed, we anticipate that there will be an immedi- ate past service cost of approximately $1.14M which will be borne by the County of Nassau as a one-time payment. This estimate is based on the assumption that payment will be made on February 1, 2023.
