The State Insurance Department Finally Wakes Up!

On Monday, July 29, 2013, the NYS Department of Financial Services (DFS) finally woke up.

In June of 2012, I had pointed out the agency's failure to do its job. And, again in March of this year I detailed continuing delay in its statutory obligation.

DFS is now initiating audits of the seven NYS retirement systems.

For the record, DFS has not released a report since the 2000-2002 audit for NYCERS.

I am absolutely certain that NYCERS needs a rigorous top to bottom audit of everything that it is supposed to be doing. Maybe DFS now has the hard focus it will need to get this job done.

How boring our lives would be without politicians.
