How to Contact PPF

At the Fund, protecting and securing the privacy of member data is a top priority. That is why before taking action on private and confidential pension matters, a personal visit to our office, a written and signed (in some cases notarized) communication, or a judicial subpoena is required. The Fund staff does not respond to telephone or e-mail inquiries relating to private member information because the identity of the caller or e-mail writer cannot be confirmed.

To communicate with the Fund by fax, members are advised to identify a specific staff member in advance and to send the fax directly to the staff member using the fax number specified. Always retain copies of the fax and fax receipt.

For answers to questions of a general nature concerning retirement and pensions, please call the Fund at (212) 693-5100; or visit the Pension Fund at 233 Broadway, 19th Floor, New York, New York 10279.

The Fund will respond promptly and completely to pension questions. The Fund’s ongoing mission is to provide excellent service to every member.


Uniformed members of the New York City Police Department appointed on or after July 1, 2009 are subject to Article 14 of the RSSL, also known as Tier 3. Contributions to the Fund must be made while employed with the NYPD. Membership in the Fund ceases upon withdrawal of contributions.
