Primary Tuition Scholarship (PTS) for Retired Officers

The Primary Tuition Scholarship (“PTS”) program pays between 10% and 35% of your dependent child’s tuition in grades K - 8 at a private school within the five boroughs of New York City, based on Total Eligible Family Income. PTS covers one year of kindergarten.Both you and the child must live within the five boroughs of New York City. See the PTS Policy for details of eligibility, how the benefit works and the application procedure.

Upon the Officer’s retirement, children remain eligible for PTS benefits for which they were eligible under the terms in effect (at the time the application is submitted) for active Officers with the same hire date. To retire with this benefit, an Officer must be 55 years or older and must have completed ten (10) years of continuous benefits-eligible service after age 45.
