                                      From: "Bill King"   billking@twcny.rr.com  

                            Subject:  HR1319 American Rescue Act of 2021 section 9

          Regarding recent legislations dealing with the pension cuts.  There is truth to the rumor that there is language  in the above named bill under section 9704 dealing with what they call a bail out for pension funds that have implemented cuts, are 40% or less funded, or will become insolvent. 

       Let our fellow retirees know ‘’don’t spend the money till it is in your hand”.   

The law states that monies will be available to approximately 124 pension funds and NYSTPF is in that group.  There will be up to 86 billion dollars for those funds.  A pension fund will need to file an application in order

to get the funds.  It could be a lump sum or it could take up to 5 years to get the monies.  It was stated it could take 4 months to get the administrative network in place.  I attached a pdf file that will give a summary of the package.  Finally the pendulum has swung in our direction.  I feel very good about what has transpired in the last couple days.  We have both legislation and litigation in our corner.  I am sure there will be much more to discuss in the near future.  This past Wednesday we had our retiree breakfast meeting at Denny’s which was well attended.  Dick Hollington and Tony Ori told us they wanted to have a Silver Club meeting and also discuss our clam bake in May.  After over 3 1/2 years our lives may start getting back to normal.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.           Fraternally, Bill

      Message from Silver Club Pres Dick Hollington

We have a price for the clambake. Our price is $58.00. We have to guarantee at least 50 people for the bake. Since Silver Club meeting we have not received any new yeses.

We are considering a new option. The VFW where we are holding our meetings has offered us the chance to hold our event there. The cost would be $15.00 p/p. They provide hot dogs, hamburgers macaroni salad, potato salad, tossed salad, soda, coffee and dessert. Beer will be available for purchase. 

The date and time would be the same for either event: Sunday, May 23, 2021 from 1-5pm.

Please respond ASAP to let us know if a) you will attend if it's the clambake, b) you will attend if it's the VFW, or c) you cannot attend.  We need as many people as possible to respond by April 15th. We need to let the owners know so we can hold that date.

Please keep in mind the point of having these events is to get people together and see old friends and colleagues.

Again, we need as many of you to respond as quickly as possible so we can make a decision.

Dick, Bev, Tony and Kim

Thank you Ken,


As always appreciate your quick response ...Unfortunate, maybe even unfair Albany area has a meeting and the rest of the state does not.  Please

correct me if I am wrong.......

Subject: RE: Trustees pension letter dated 3/17




The Trustees’ March 17 letter provides an accurate summary of where things stand at this time.  The Trustees share the interest you and many other participants have expressed in knowing more about how the Emergency Pension Plan Relief Act might apply to the Fund.  Until the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporate issues regulatory guidance, however, many unknowns will remain.  The Fund is not alone in this regard, with many pension funds and other interested parties having the same questions.   


As stated in the letter, the Trustees are cautiously optimistic and will continue to update everyone through the web site.

Dear Ken and Jeff,


I received the letter from our trustees on 3/31.  I view it as vague leaving our retirees with some questions.

I know that they had a meeting in the Albany area and would like to know if it looks like we would have

one here if requested?  It just looks like we are in limbo until July 10th at best.  The fact of the matter

is that our retirees will not be any younger in 120 day and we really don’t know what the intent of

our trustees is.  Please let me know if you have any suggestions. 


Best Regards,

To all NYSPF retirees [ concerning letter sent from NYSPF to retirees on March 17, 2021 ]

After reading this letter several times and trying to determine what information it contains, I have come to the conclusion it is the closest thing you can get to a blank sheet of paper.  The trustees have committed to nothing.  All they say is they will “monitor the situation”.  For all we know they may not even file for the funds on behalf of the participants.  In my opinion it seems as though the trustees are intimidated and controlled by the US Treasury.  I pray Judge Hertling will move our case forward post haste after the 120 day stay.  At that point we will be close to the 4 year mark of pension cuts.  It is so painful to see this travesty which according to the U S Constitution never should have occurred. 

                                                                            Thanks for letting me vent, Bill King
