New York General Municipal Law
Sec. § 207-D
Additional Retirement Benefits for Certain Policemen in Cities and Certain Villages

§ 207-d. Additional retirement benefits for certain policemen in cities and certain villages.


As used in this section:


“Final compensation” means the average annual salary or wages for services as a policeman earned from the date of his minimum period to the date of his retirement.


“Policeman” means a paid officer or member of the uniformed force of the police department of a city or of any village which has elected to make the benefits provided under this section available to the paid officers or members of its police department or force.


“Minimum period” means a fixed number of years of service as a policeman specified in a plan or option elected by him as a necessary prerequisite for a pension or retirement allowance upon retirement from such service.


Notwithstanding the provisions of any general, special or local law, charter or administrative code and in lieu of any lesser amount thereby prescribed, in the event a policeman has served as such for his minimum period and thereafter continues in such service, upon his subsequent retirement for any cause whatsoever, there shall be added to the amount of the annual pension or retirement allowance to which he was entitled upon, such retirement an additional amount computed at the rate of one-sixtieth of his final compensation for each year of such additional service.


The provisions of this section shall not apply to members of the New York state policemen’s and firemen’s retirement system.
