                                      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.   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

        Click link below to read more about the Butch Lewis bill recently signed into law by The President

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. 



FYI:  As you know congress gave the PBGC (Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation) 120 days from March 11th to implement the application form and process.  We are now at 95 days in which puts the deadline mid July.   Below is the link to get information regarding that process. 

I believe this is the best source for us to get creditable information.

I am very disappointed in the lack-luster manor in which our trustees have neglected to keep us up dated.  The more fellow retirees know about this web site the better. 

Please get this out to as many of our brothers and sisters as possible. 

If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions please let me know............Thanks
