Memo

BILL NUMBER:S3924

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize Domingo Cabrera to file a retroactive application for retirement with the New York state teachers' retirement system

PURPOSE: This bill would allow Domingo Cabrera to receive retirement benefits from the New York State Teachers' Retirement System.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section I. Domingo Cabrera suffers from mental illness and ended employment on January 1, 2009. This bill deems Domingo applied to the New York State Teachers' Retirement System for disability retirement benefits within 30 days of ending employment on January 1, 2009. This would negate the day he officially applied to the New York State Teachers' Retirement System for retirement benefits, May 19, 2011.

Section II. The costs incurred in implementing this act will be borne by the New York State Teachers' Retirement System.

JUSTIFICATION: Domingo Cabrera is unable to work due to his mental illness. Due to his mental illness, Domingo Cabrera did not file for retirement benefits within 30 days of ending his employment on January 1, 2009. Domingo Cabrera is unable to be a self-sustaining member of society without receiving retroactive benefits offered by the New York State Teachers' Retirement System's retirement benefits. It is necessary for Domingo Cabrera to receive retroactive retirement benefits because these monetary benefits will allow Cabrera to be a sustaining member of society.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012 - S.6803/A.9712 - Civil Service and Pensions - Died

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: See fiscal note

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
