Seward Bill Requires

NY Retirement System

To Own Up To Error

RSCS Teacher Saved From Heavy Hand

ALBANY – State Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, today announced passage of state Senate Law 6420, assisting a retired Otsego County teacher who the New York State Teachers Retirement System was forcing to repay nearly $64,000 due to an NYSTRS’ computation error.

The law requires the retirement system to “shoulder the responsibility” for its error, Seward said.   Companion legislation introduced by state Rep. John Salka, R-121st, passed the Assembly.  The law must now be signed by the governor.
