NYC Police Pension Fund Response to COVID-19
Due to the COVID19 pandemic and associated emergency orders, the Police Pension Fund is closed to member walk-ins effective 1700 hours March 24, 2020.
The Fund asks that you utilize online member self-service: webCOPS. Members who have registered can submit forms and ask questions via secure message. Due to the pandemic, the PPF has suspended its notarization requirement for any forms that are not in the nature of an affidavit (for example, Notices of Participation and FDQs still need to be notarized). If you have not registered for webCOPS, please do so by going to https://www.webcops.org/ppfmss/app.
Members wishing to file for retirement can email Retirement Counseling at Retirement@nycppf.org
All other inquiries can be directed to the Call Center at (646) 905-5596 from 0900x1700 hours. Due to anticipated high call volume, please expect delays.
Deferred Compensation loan requests must be submitted directly to DCP via email to NEWYRK@VOYAPLANS.com. Please only include the last 4 digits of your Social Security number, along with your name and address on all forms. For more information, please consult DCP’s website: https://www1.nyc.gov/site/olr/deferred/dcphome.page
You may also mail any forms or documents to (please note the processing of mail is day-to-day and could stop at any time):
New York City Police Pension Fund
233 Broadway 25th Floor
New York, NY 10279
Hopefully the situation resolves itself quickly and business can resume as usual. We apologize in advance for any disruption of service that you may encounter and endeavor to continue providing superior service New York’s Finest. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
COPS 2.0 / Member Self Service Update
We’re pleased to introduce our new service for members and retirees: webCOPS. This is a secure, self-service website to view your pension account and connect with us online.
We rolled out the first version of webCOPS to a group of “pilot precincts” last fall. We took the feedback received from those precincts and are using it to improve the current system and for future rollouts. The next rollout will be available in the summer of 2022.
We’ll continue to post updates here. Thanks again for all of your patience and support.
Chapter 431 Buyback – Tier 3 Cadet Bill
This law allows current Tier 3 members who served in the NYPD Cadet Program in the title of Police Cadet or Police Cadet II prior to April 1, 2012 and did not join NYCERS while serving in the Cadet title, to purchase their Cadet service with the Police Pension Fund.
This service purchase is for membership status only and does not count as uniformed police service.
Eligible members are entitled to all rights, benefits, and privileges that he or she would have been entitled to upon the earliest date of being hired as a Police Cadet. This would allow Tier 3 members who were Cadets to move to Tier 3 Original or Tier 2 from either Tier 3 Revised or Tier 3 Original depending on their hire date with the Cadets.
The cost of this buyback is all contributions that would have been payable to NYCERS, had the member joined on the earliest eligible date. In addition, the member is responsible for interest at the rate of 5% on these contributions from the Cadet hire date to the date payment is complete.
Applications must be made and payment must be completed by October 29, 2024.
Eligible members can apply to purchase this service using Form 146.
Tier 3 Enhanced members will have an additional contribution rate of 1% applied and deducted from biweekly paychecks beginning December 15, 2017. For more information regarding Tier 3 Enhanced, please visit the updated Tier 3 Summary Plan Description by clicking here .
