UFA Rally - Disability Pension

FDNY Firefighters Decry $27 Disability Pension for Injured NY Bravest - Should NEW Firefighters Be Forced to Risk Their Lives & Health for $27/ Day?

UFA President Steve Cassidy together with New York City Firefighters and City Councilmembers denounced the abysmal $27/day disability pension that newer FDNY members are forced to exist on, if they become seriously injured or permanently disabled on the job.

Firefighters, councilmembers and the union are demanding The New York City Council take immediate action by passing a home rule message to fix to this urgent public safety crisis for New York City’s first responders, so they have the same disability protections as others across the State of New York.
