CAPTION:

AMENDS CHARTER: CHANGES PROVISIONS OF FIRE POLICE DISABILITY RETIREMENT SYSTEM.

 

QUESTION:

Shall limited provisions of the retirement and disability system for police and fire be changed? 

 

SUMMARY:

This measure would amend the City Charter for the Fire Police Disability Retirement System (FPDR) by: 

  • Clarifying the calculation of retirement benefits to include only pay a member received in the year preceding retirement.
  • Changing eligibility for disability benefits for new members after completion of six consecutive months of employment as a sworn employee. 
  • Changing the calculation of service credit to not include post-employment service by another employer. 
  • Giving the Administrator, with the approval of the Board of Trustees, authority to settle claims.
  • Defining service requirements for occupational disability due to heart disease and nonservice-connected disability and death benefits.
  • Changing retirement benefits for part-time employees.
  • Providing disability benefits on a monthly or bi-weekly basis.
  • Providing interim disability benefits during the period between the application and approval of benefits. 
  • Clarifying language regarding occupational disability benefits. 
  • Changing from 10 years to 5 years the vesting period for nonservice-connected death benefits. 

This amendment is expected to decrease FPDR taxpayer liabilities by $46 Million over a 25 year period.
