WTC Notice of Participation Update for Vested Members
Chapter 489 of the Laws of 2013 was enacted on November 13, 2013. This law extends the Notice of Participation filing deadline to September 11, 2014 for vested members to file a sworn statement indicating participation in the Rescue, Recovery, and Clean-up Operations. This law also now allows vested members to apply for a WTC related Accident Disability Retirement prior to reaching their 20th anniversary of allowable police service.
Vested members who did not previously file a Notice of Participation are encouraged to now file. Members who are in possession of verifying information are also encouraged to submit copies such documentation to the Fund to be imaged into the member’s file.
