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.
