Pat Lynch targets former Governor for inadequate Tier 3 Disability benefits

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:  

“The disability benefits under the Tier 3 pension plan are grossly inadequate.  It is immoral to expect someone to risk their life for the good of the city and not be prepared to care for them and their family should some catastrophic harm befall them in the line of duty.  We must have legislation to correct this gross inequity that occurred under the cover of night when former Governor Paterson failed to renew the Tier 2 pension for our members without considering the serious harm to first responders.”
