Memo

BILL NUMBER:S5348A

TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to granting Jo Ann H. Mattingly Tier II status in the New York state and local employees' retirement system with a membership date of January 24, 1975

PURPOSE: To grant Jo Ann H. Mattingly Tier II status in the New York state and local employees' retirement system.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Jo Ann H. Mattingly is currently a Tier IV member of the New York and local employees' retirement system employed by the Office of Court Administration, and who was appointed to a temporary, competitive civil service position from January 24, 1975 through December 21, 1977. For reasons not ascribable to her own negligence, she failed to become a member of the New York state and local employees' retirement system on the date she first commenced such employment in 1975.

Section 1 states that, notwithstanding any other provision of law, Jo Ann H. Mattingly is granted Tier II status with every right, benefit and privilege which would have been available to her on such date.

Fiscal Note - There is an anticipated increase of $3,400 in the annual contributions of the State of New York for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2014. In addition, there will be an immediate past service cost of approximately $41,400, which would be borne by the State of New York as a onetime payment. This estimate is based on the assumption that the payment will be made on March 1, 2015.

JUSTIFICATION: Through no fault of her own, Jo Ann H. Mattingly, presently employed by the Office of Court Administration, failed to become a member of the New York state and local employees' retirement system. This bill affords Ms. Mattingly to be deemed to have joined the New York State and Local Employees Retirement System on January 24, 1975 (Tier II) and receive service credit for employment service.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: No legislative history.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: If this legislation is enacted during the 2014 session, it is anticipated that there will be an increase of approximately $3,400 in the annual contributions of the State of New York for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2015. Additionally, there will be an immediate past service cost of approximately $41,400, which would be borne by the State of New York as a onetime payment. This estimate is based on the assumption that the payment will be made on March 1, 2015.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
