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.
