TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the New York city employees' retirement system to consider the application for disability retirement benefits from Peter DiMario

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

To allow Peter DiMario to apply to disability benefits from the New York City Employees' Retirement System.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill requires the New York City Employees' Retirement to accept the application for disability retirement benefits of Peter DiMario as if filed in a timely manner.

Section 2 of the bill states that all costs associated with the implementation of this act shall be borne by the State.

Section 3 is the immediate effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

The company where Peter DiMario worked from June of 1984 to December of 2010, closed in December of 2010. Mr. DiMario filed for disability retirement benefits in October of 2011 not realizing that his application should have been filed by March 7, 2011. As a result New York City Employees' Retirement System denied Mr. DiMario's application. He, however, believed that he had one year from the closure date to file his application.

This bill will require the New York City Employees' Retirement System to accept Mr.DiMario's application for disability retirement benefits as if filed in a timely manner.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill - 2012
