Give yourself extra time to arrive at our Garden City office Monday due to traffic changes for the presidential debate at nearby Hofstra University. For traffic restrictions, http://bit.ly/2dpaZST.
On July 26, 2008, Governor Paterson signed legislation that created the Livery Drivers Benefit Fund. The Fund provides Workers' Compensation benefits for serious injuries and crimes committed against drivers dispatched by qualifying independent livery bases licensed in Westchester, Nassau and New York City. Effective January 1, 2010- in order to obtain, renew or retain a license, each base must provide their TLC with proof of a Workers' Compensation policy for its drivers or a certificate that they are a member of this Fund.
To become a member of the Independent Livery Drivers Benefit Fund, an application and affirmation must be completed and submitted to Hereford Insurance Company, the insurance company for the ILDBF, along with payment of premium based on the number of affiliated vehicles.
