A Tier 6 member is someone who joins the New York City Employees’ Retirement System (NYCERS) on or after April 1, 2012 except for:
• Members of the Uniformed Force of the NYC Department of Correction
• Members of the Uniformed Force of the NYC Department of Sanitation
• Investigators employed in a District Attorney’s Office"

How is my FAS calculated?
FAS is defined as the average of wages earned by a member during any continuous period of employment for which the member was
credited with five years of Credited Service. However, wages earned during any year used in an FAS calculation cannot exceed the
average of the previous four years by more than ten percent.
Are any wages excluded from the FAS calculation?
Yes.
The Tier 6 definition of wages includes an “overtime ceiling,” which limits overtime compensation for pension purposes. An overtime
ceiling of $15,000 was established as of April 1, 2012 for Tier 6 members, and by law may escalate annually based on the increase in
the Consumer Price Index (CPI-U) published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. The overtime ceiling effective January 1,
2018 is $16,406. Any overtime compensation earned in excess of the overtime ceiling is excluded from the FAS calculation. Overtime
compensation is compensation paid at a rate greater than the standard rate>"

The Service Retirement Benefit payable upon accruing 22 years of Credited Service is 50% of Final Average Salary (FAS) minus
50% of the member’s Primary Social Security Benefit commencing at age 62, which is determined by a formula based upon wages
earned from a public employer from which Social Security deductions were taken.
Try reading the correct documentation. We are not Tier 6... we have our own Sanitation plan which is called tier 3 modified. There is so much misinformation on this job cause dudes think they know what’s going on and spread it as fact.

The men will be getting it done in the street and still be killing it with $$$.
Everyone’s situation is diff, for some people the badge makes sense. Guys who get on real late in life, their body prob can’t take 20 yrs in the street. I came on with guys in their late 40’s-50’s. Also guys who land with good timing and take the test quick, how could you turn down the badge when you have 2-3 years on. Guys with 10+ Working close to home it becomes a much diff choice. I’m in a great spot as far as Supv go’s so can’t Complain much, but 100% SW in the street is a much better gig than Supv. In the street Obviously it’s alot harder physical work, but the mental sanity is well worth it if your body can handle it.

This is geared more toward the new guys on here, I know I ain’t telling you anything new lol

Depends on the garage. My garage all the senior guys take the ot. Also depends on where you fall in seniority. I’m making truck every day but the bottom 2 that cane out of class with me have only made it once. Lot of variables

If I remember correctly I did about 60 my first year. That was at a garage with a lot of Sunday’s, and if I remember it was a pretty bad (good?) winter. And saying yes to all OT I wasn’t forced on
