Public pensions in the Hudson Valley

Here are the annual pensions paid to state and local government retirees, school support staff and custodians for the fiscal year that ended in March 2011. This list focuses on Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess and Ulster counties, although it also includes statewide agencies, data from some surrounding counties and miscellaneous government bodies in New York. It does not include teachers and school administrators, New York City police, and firefighters.

Here is a list of all pension payments statewide.

The information was compiled by The Empire Center for New York State Policy, an arm of the conservative Manhattan Institute for Policy Research and was based on the Employee Retirement System, the largest in the state. Pension benefits provided through ERS are not subject to state and local taxes. Retirees also receive annual cost-of-living increases if they are 62 and have been retired five years or if they are 55 and have been retired 10 years.
