NYC stalling on disability pension paperwork, says dying Ground Zero hero Mike Earley

Retired EMS Captain Mike Earley is dying of World Trade Center-related pancreatic cancer – he was given a year to live this spring. But the New York City Employees’ Retirement System (NYCERS) won’t approve his disability pension.

“They’ve received every piece of paperwork Sloan Kettering has on me. All NYCERS keeps doing is tell me, ‘We’ve received your paperwork, but please send me this now and send us that now.’ At this point I have nothing left to send them.” he told Thomas Tracy for the New York Daily News.
