SCRIE & DRIE Tenants & the MCI

Tenants on SCRIE (Senior Citizen Rent Increase Exemption) and DRIE (Disabled Rent Increase Exemption) will NOT pay the Major Capital Improvement (MCI) increase every month.  BUT

(1) You must pay (just once) the increased security resulting from the MCI's increase for your apartment.  
1 bedroom apartment: $23.01
2 bedroom apartment: $30.68
3 bedroom apartment: $38.35.

(2) You must notify DRIE or SCRIE using a form called "Adjustment of Abatement" about the MCI so that the government can pay Stellar the increase.  
 
SCRIE tenants can find the form at http://home2.nyc.gov/html/dof/html/pdf/scrie/scrie_adjustment_to_abatement.pdf .
You will need to fill in your SCRIE Docket Number.

DRIE tenants can find the form at  http://www.nyc.gov/html/dof/html/pdf/drie/drie_adjustment_to_abatement.pdf
