WTC Registration re-opened until Sept. 11, 2018, for Workers Compensation and New York City and State Retirements Systems
Good morning all. As most of you already know, that Gov. Cuomo has signed the bill to amend boththe Workers Compensation and the Retirement and Social Security law permitting those who have yet to file their notice of participation registration forms to now do so with both systems. This will allow them to take advantage of the presumptions that come along with the filing of those claims.
September 11, 2018 is the new deadline to file a WTC-12 form with the Workers Compensation system and a NOTICE OF PARTICIPATION form with the applicable Retirement System.
Despite our past great efforts, believe it or not, I can tell you from personal experience, there are still many workers and members of your unions or associations that have not filed these forms. I saw two just last week that have not done so.
This gives everyone a fresh start again! Please alert your members and others that you think might need this information.
If you have any questions, of course, just contact me.
