Post-Retirement Volunteer Bill Ok'd

On August 17 Governor Murphy signed into law A-1627/S-1873, which protects the pension rights of former employees who continue to serve their communities as volunteer first responders. The League strongly supported this legislation that stems from a 2014 League Conference resolution. That Resolution called for State action to correct Division of Pension and Benefits guidance on post-retirement employment restrictions for public employees. We thank the sponsors Senators Sarlo and Kean, Assemblywoman Schepisi, and Assemblymen Bucco, Auth, Danielson, and DiMaio for their efforts in advancing this legislative fix to permit volunteers to continue to serve their communities. For more on P.L. 2018, c. 96, which took effect on August 17, 2018, please see our recent blog post.
