Dozens Of Wash. Pensioners May Have Been Overpaid
Washington retirement officials have identified dozens of pensioners who may have received excessive retirement payments.
The Department of Retirement Systems said Friday it is in the process of reviewing 98 cases in which someone may have improperly received pension payments while working in another government job.
The state is also still collecting information from local government agencies and may add more cases to the auditing process in the coming weeks.
State officials began gathering records on retirees last year in the wake of Associated Press stories about firefighter and law enforcement pensions.
So far, the state has already determined that three of the 98 cases led to pension overpayments. Officials are seeking to recover about $40,000 from those three cases.
