Former Queens DA Aide Collects A Pension Over $300,000 Per Year


Eileen Sullivan, served as an executive assistant to the late Queens District Attorney Richard Brown for 30 years. When she retired in August of 2017 she started collecting her yearly pension of $319,494 according to a report from the Empire Center for Public Policy.

According to an article published in the New York Post, Sullivan had worked for New York City for a total of 42 years. And since she started before 1978 she was able to contribute more money toward her pension then those employees who started after a new set of rules were established in the city's pension plan.

A spokesperson from the DA's office said the figure cited in the report was "inaccurate" and "substantially more" than the pension Sullivan receives. When pressed on Sullivan's pension the spokesperson would not give out an exact figure.

Records show that 1,108 retirees in the New York City Retirement System are eligible for pensions over $100,000 per year.
