Tier 3 / Tier 6 Enhanced Plan "Opt In" Info with Application

Tier 3 / Tier 6 Enhanced Plan "Opt In" Deadline, Thursday January 5th.

All current Tier 3/Tier 6 members must "Opt In" in order to be fully covered for 3/4 disability benefits & all current presumptive bills.

In addition, members that do not opt in now, will not be enhanced plan members and therefore ineligible for any future improvements to the Tier 3 Enhanced plan.

As of January 3, only 19 members have yet to join, these members must opt in by Thursday January 5th. Completed applications may be faxed to the FDNY pension unit @ 718-999-0107.

  • All members will be covered retroactively to their date of hire.
  • Applications will not be accepted after January 5th, 2017.
  • The 2% will only be retro to September 8th, the date the bill was signed.
  • The forms are available via the FDNY intranet & by clicking HERE.

Contact Lori Kilpatrick from FDNY Pension if you have not yet received a confirmation letter 718-999-1189.
