To apply for a reclassification of your service or disability retirement benefit to an accidental disability retirement benefit, you must:
- Meet the same eligibility requirements as previously stated; and
- Complete an Application for World Trade Center Accidental Disability Presumption (RS6047-W) and send it to the Retirement System. If you have not already done so, you must file an Application for World Trade Center Notice (RS6047-N) on or before September 11, 2022.
If you do not file for reclassification on or before September 11, 2022, you must still file an Application for World Trade Center Notice (RS6047-N) by that date to be eligible for reclassification should you become disabled in the future.
Note: Your employer, at the time of your retirement, will be given an opportunity to make a statement regarding your reclassification application.
