Big Win for 9/11 Firefighter Widow Fighting for WTC Death Benefit Pension
March 29, 2016
By Turley, Hansen & Rosasco on 9/11 WTC Pensions
In a strongly worded opinion slamming the New York City Fire Department Pension Board, New York Supreme Court Justice Richard Velasquez found that the Pension Board acted in “bad faith” and will be “sanctioned” for denying death benefits to the widow of a hero 9/11 firefighter. Bottom Line – the New York Fire Department Pension Board was appropriately “taken to the woodshed”. Let it be a lesson to all New York Pension Board’s in the future treat 9/11 heroes fairly.
