Smith, a retired member of the New York city police department, who joined the New York city employees retirement system on June 30, 1992 and who applied for accidental performance of duty disability retirement bene- fits based upon illnesses suffered as a result of exposure to diseases during the course of undercover duties performed beginning in August 2002, and who has had those benefits denied, shall be hereby awarded such benefits retroactively from his August 12, 2009 service retirement. § 2. The benefits and awards provided for under this act shall be paid for, and shared equally by, all public retirement systems, of which Frank R. Smith was a member. § 3. This act shall take effect immediately. FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50: SUMMARY OF BILL: Police officer Frank R. Smith retired with an Ordi- nary Disability Retirement (ODR) from the New York City Police Pension Fund (POLICE) on August 12, 2009.

For the purposes of calculating the fiscal impact of the proposed legislation, Mr. Smith's actual June 30, 1992 date of membership with POLICE and the change from his actual ODR benefit to the proposed ADR benefit were used. All costs associated with the implementation of this proposed legislation would be borne by POLICE.
