                STATE OF NEW YORK
        ________________________________________________________________________
 
                                          7644
 
                    IN SENATE
 
                                      May 22, 2014
                                       ___________
 
        Introduced  by  Sen.  MARCELLINO  -- read twice and ordered printed, and
          when printed to be committed to the Committee  on  Civil  Service  and
          Pensions
 
        AN  ACT  to  authorize  Darwyn  Byer  to apply for accidental disability
          retirement benefits from the New York state and local police and  fire
          retirement system
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-

        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of  law,  Darwyn  Byer,
     2  who  is  employed by the Nassau County Police Department since March 31,
     3  1995 and is a member of the New York state and  local  police  and  fire
     4  retirement  system  for  approximately 17 years, was injured on December
     5  26, 2002 as the result of an on the job  accident.  Notwithstanding  any
     6  rule,  regulation  or  law to the contrary, he shall be entitled to file
     7  for an accidental disability retirement benefit provided by the New York
     8  state and local police and fire retirement system. Such application will
     9  be based upon the full duty standard of a  police  officer  rather  than
    10  utilize  a  light duty standard. Such application must be filed with the
    11  New York state and local police and fire retirement system  pursuant  to

    12  section  363  of  the  retirement  and social security law no later than
    13  December 31, 2014.
    14    § 2. All costs associated with the implementation of this act shall be
    15  borne by the county of Nassau.
    16    § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
          FISCAL NOTE-- Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50:
          This bill would provide a different standard for an  accidental  disa-
        bility retirement benefit determination for Darwyn Byer than is current-
        ly  required  by  regulations  promulgated  by  the  State  Comptroller.
        Specifically, the bill would require that the State Comptroller render a
        determination as to whether Mr. Byer  is  entitled  to  such  disability
        benefit  based  upon  a "full duty standard" rather than the "light duty
        standard" required by Title 2 of the New York  Codes,  Rules  and  Regu-

        lations Part 364 for such a determination on an application for benefits
        filed by or on behalf of Darwyn Byer or anyone else similarly situated.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD10989-02-4

        S. 7644                             2
 
          If  this  bill  is  enacted and a disability benefit is granted, there
        will be an immediate past service cost of approximately  $432,000  which
        will  be  borne by Nassau County as a one-time payment. This estimate is
        based on the assumption that payment will be made on February 1, 2015.
          Summary of relevant resources:
          The  membership  data  used  in  measuring  the impact of the proposed

        Report of the  Actuary  and  the  2013  Comprehensive  Annual  Financial
        Report.

        Assumptions,  and  the  Codes  Rules and Regulations of the State of New
        York: Audit and Control.

        fication Standards to render the actuarial opinion contained herein.
