Former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has filed his retirement papers effective Tuesday, according to the state comptroller’s office.

Silver was automatically forced from office on Monday when he was found guilty of seven corruption charges, including money laundering and theft of honest services.

Silver has 44 years of pension service credit and is in Tier I. He officially entered the system on May 24, 1971.

State lawmakers have proposed and approved various measures to have public officials convicted of corruption to forfeit their pensions.

But the Republican-led Senate and Democratic-controlled Assembly remain at odds over a constitutional amendment that would apply pension forfeiture for those who were previously in the system and subsequently convicted.

Assembly Democrats last year initially balked at the amendment over concerns it was too broadly written.

U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara has previously sought to claw back pension benefits from public officials found guilty of corruption, including former Sen. Malcolm Smith and ex-Assemblyman Eric Stevenson.
