Mount Vernon Owes Retired Firefighter $200K

LoHud Press: June 2, 2016

Michael Masullo, a retired disabled Mount Vernon firefighter, won an appellate court ruling June 1, 2016, that the city was wrong to strip him of benefits in 2009.(Photo: Submitted)

Mount Vernon will have to pay more than $200,000 to a retired firefighter after an appellate court found the city inappropriately cut off his disability payments in 2009.

The decision clears the way for Michael Masullo to collect seven years worth of payments he was denied.

The appellate decision sends the case back to acting state Supreme Court Justice Robert Neary to direct Mount Vernon to reinstate Masullo’s benefits and calculate the precise amount he is owed in salary and interest since February 2009.

The entire court decision is at:

Pension News Articles
Under Pension News Articles in the menu options there are two new very scary articles.  Let the States Go Bankrupt & To Save the States.  This issue is beginning to gain ground with federal legislators. Read More...
News Concerns and Pension & Health Ins. News Articles
Please note:  In the main Menu under News Concerns and Pension & Health Ins. News Articles there are several links to many articles that have been in the NY papers.  Their content may appear to be related to NYC but there impact will be felt across the state as other municipalities start to do comparisons in the same way within their own police and firefighter ranks.    Be extremely thankful that the NYS Constitution prohibits pensions from being diminished.  This is an issue we have fought to keep in place over the years when the NYS Constitutional Convention issues arise.  The health insurance issue will continued to be attacked.
