The Veterans Buyback Bill has reached Governor Cuomo’s desk! He now has 10-days (not including Sundays) to sign or veto the bill. The governor’s failure to sign or veto a bill within that 10-day period means it becomes law automatically.
This bill would expand eligibility to buy back up to three years pension service credit to all public employees who were honorably discharged from military service regardless of the dates or locations of their military service.
This legislation will extend this opportunity to veterans who were in the military and served their country during peace times as well.
PEF’s Legislative Office will be tracking its progress each day. Thanks to all our Veterans, members and allies that have gotten the bill this far!
