Filing a Notice of Participation with the New York City Police Pension Fund is a statutory prerequisite to filing for a WTC-related disability pension or Line of Duty Death Benefit. If you do not file this form before the deadline, you are not eligible for WTC-related pension benefits, even if you would otherwise qualify. The form is available on the Police Pension Fund website.
This form is for any member (active, retired, or Vested) who participated in the World Trade Center Rescue, Recovery or Clean-Up Operations between September 11, 2001 and September 12, 2002. This form must be submitted to the Police Pension Fund by September 11, 2022. The form is for notification purposes only and does not constitute an application for retirement or reclassification pursuant to Chapter 93 of the Laws of 2005 as amended by Chapter 489 of the Laws of 2008, Chapter 489 of the Laws of 2013, Chapter 472 of the Laws of 2014, Chapter 326 of the Laws of 2016, and Chapter 266 of the Laws of 2018. In order to apply for retirement benefits, a separate application must be completed.
You can verify that you have already completed this requirement by finding your tax number listed on the Police Pension Fund website.
If you have any questions regarding how to complete this form or why it is important, please call our office at (212) 766-5800.
