Petitioning NYS Assembly Speaker NYS Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver and 2 others

Support the Lois Reid bill, A-05561, in the NYS Assembly


This bill will correct an injustice when a NYS Employee became totally and permanently disabled, but was denied Disability Retirement benefits because the the NYS and Local Employees Retirement System believed that the employee was disabled, but they did not believe that the disability was permanent. They were wrong. This individual has been totally and continuously disabled for the past 23 years.

This petition was delivered to:
