Memo

BILL NUMBER:S4388

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the military law, in relation to non-contributory retirement service credit for members of the New York city retirement systems called to military duty on or after September eleventh, two thousand one

PURPOSE: To include City of New York Employees for military service credit already granted to all other State, municipal and school district employees.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends section 243-d of the State Military Law.

JUSTIFICATION: After September 11, 2001 New Yorkers across thestate, including city and state employees were called to active military duty for homeland security purposes. In accordance with existing civil service principles and to assist the public employees that answered this call, the New York State Legislature acted in 2005 to ensure that the time Served in this capacity would be reflected in their credited retirement plans. Due to technical error, this legislation omitted members of the New York City retirement systems. This legislation would bring current law in line with the original bill's stated purpose.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall be deemed to have been in full force and effect on and after September 11, 2001.
