233 Broadway Flooding
Please be advised that due to the extreme cold a pipe burst at the Woolworth Building, causing some flooding at the Police Pension Fund’s offices. In addition, three of our four elevators are down due to flooding in the elevator shafts. We are still open for business, but be prepared for substantial delays exiting and entering the building.
COPS 2.0 / Member Self Service Update
In our effort to continue to improve our services, last year PPF announced a system upgrade to enhance member experience and system performance. This upgrade includes a long-awaited online Member Self- Service portal. PPF is pleased to inform the membership that although this extensive project will take a few years to complete, we plan to deploy a “lite” version of Member Self-Service as early as the summer of 2019. Some of the “lite” functionality includes: allowing members and retirees to see pension account information online, download and upload pension-related forms, and correspond digitally with PPF through secure messaging.
Once completed, the new Comprehensive Officers Pension System or COPS 2.0, for short, will allow members and retirees to perform many of the pension related functions that are currently completed in person or via US Mail. We hear your feedback and work continuously to provide the best customer service available. Please continue to check our website and Facebook page for the most current information.
