NEW YORK MEMBERS -Important *Power of Attorney Information* If you are unable to act due to a serious health condition, it is extremely important that your spouse, significant other or dependent has access to your completed Power of Attorney form to act on your behalf related to the retirement system.
You should advise the individual designated to contact UPSEU immediately if you become or they believe you may become incapacitated as it will potentially impact pension rights afforded to them.
This would in no way impact any decision if you become capable of acting on your own behalf and for you to reverse any decision made. Again, it is extremely important that your loved ones have access to your executed Power of Attorney. You do not submit to anyone. It is retained with your important papers.
