In the 147th General Assembly, the state employee pension law was amended to permit corrections officers employed in positions that are classified as Hazardous Duty Level A-1 to retire at 25 years without any reduction. Those employees will pay a higher employee contribution rate. Those employees that continue to work past 25 years of service will have the multiplier used in the calculation of benefits increased for the years past 25 years. This bill extends the same treatment to other corrections and enforcement officers. These officers are probation and parole officers in the Department of Corrections, Capitol Police officers, DNREC police officers, University of Delaware police, and officers working for the State Fire Marshal. ​There is a two-year delay between the effective date of the increased contribution and the implementation of the new benefit calculation.
