Vote By Mail – In New York State

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo expanded absentee voting in order to minimize the number of people at polling sites for the safety of both voters and poll workers. Here’s what you need to know about remote voting in New York.

In order to vote by mail, voters must still fill out and submit an application to receive an absentee ballot. 

To request an absentee ballot, you may fill out an absentee ballot application and check “temporary illness or physical disability” as the reason you are requesting an absentee ballot. You may request an absentee ballot as follows:

Applications for Absentee Ballots are available at your county board of elections.

You may also download a PDF version of the New York State Absentee Ballot Application Form. Upon completion, applications must be mailed, emailed or faxed to your county board no later than the seventh day before the election or delivered in person no later than the day before the election

 

Victor Raven, our unit leader is presently participating in a rehabilitation program which became necessary due to a medical problem. We all wish him well and hope that he will re-join us in the not too distant future. In the interim, our very capable assistant unit leader, Renee Shulman, will serve as the leader of our unit.

Online Census information:

  • New York City has been losing out on funds for schools, hospitals, roads, and more because only 62% of New Yorkers filled out the 2010 Census. This includes essential health care funding for our communities. We all need 100%

  • Fill out the census right away. Visit my2020census.gov or call 844-330-2020 and get counted..

IRMAA

The Retiree Fund sent information concerning the Social Security Benefit letters required to claim IRMAA reimbursement from the City of New York.  If you have not received your letter in the mail, you have two choices.  One, you can call Social Security or visit a local office and request a copy; or, you can access the Message Center through your https://www.ssa.gov/myaccount/   Log in to your account, click on Message Center at the top.  Click on "Your 2020 Medicare Premiums" to get a copy of the letter.  Letters for previous years may be there - if they are, print the 2019 letter and save it for the IRMAA reimbursement. Please contact the Welfare Fund at 212-962-6061 should you need assistance on this or any other matter.

Suspended TDA RMD's for 2020:

The CARES Act has suspended Required Minimum Distributions for 2020 for defined-contribution plans like TRS' TDA Program. RMDs would normally be paid to certain retired members with TDA accounts and TDA Beneficiary (TDAB) members, but no distribution will be required in 2020. By early May, TRS will contact affected members by letter to explain the suspension and to communicate the amount that they would have been required to receive as an RMD; that amount is not eligible for direct rollover in 2020.
