ALBANY — Dean Skelos, the former Senate Majority Leader who was convicted weeks ago of corruption, will retire officially Jan. 2, according to government records. And he’s applying to receive his state pension. Independent think-tank The Empire Center calculates that pension at about $95,000 a year, based on the 32 years Skelos spent in the state Legislature and nine years in government elsewhere. A state law does require lawmakers convicted of work-related felonies to forfeit their pensions, but that applies only to lawmakers elected after that bill was signed into law. A move to include all lawmakers fell apart earlier this year.
