About This Publication
This retirement plan publication describes the benefits available to Tier 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 Police and Fire Retirement System members covered by the Environmental Conservation Police Retirement Plan. (There is no Tier 4 within the Police and Fire Retirement System.) These benefits are provided by Section 383-b of the New York State Retirement and Social Security Law (RSSL) as enacted by the New York State Legislature.
Throughout this publication, you will find references to “Sections” and “Articles” that refer to the RSSL. The New York State and Local Retirement System, headed by the Comptroller of the State of New York, administers these plans. Our main office is in Albany, New York.
This publication is a general summary of membership benefits, rights and responsibilities, and is not a substitute for any New York State or federal law. For specific information about your benefits, please contact us.
