WTC legislation # SB4961 has passed.

Albany NY 
Local 2507 is proud to announce our WTC legislation # SB4961 has passed both houses. Bill will be heading to the Governor’s office for final approval. 

Some members that were employed by the FDNY during the WTC incident didn’t join nycers for whatever ever reason until later on in their career. Those members were not eligible for WTC benefits even though they bought back the time.This legislation will correct this issue, making those members now eligible for benefits. 

Thank you State Senator Andrew Gounardes, Assemblyman Peter Abbate and all others that helped us to pass this legislation.
