The Subcommittee discussed the following requests for waivers of the repayment of an overpayment:

The Reidy Situation (MERS) - (contingent annuitants) Overpayment due to SSDI reduction: three daughters of deceased member have been overpaid due to the member's unreported SSDI award. This item consists of three waiver requests: one from each of the daughters (he chose a twenty year certain & each daughter is a contingent annuitant under that option).

Action: Ms. Yelmini moved; Mr. Coffey second to recommend to the Commission to deny all three requests for a waiver of repayment of an overpayment as the three contingent annuitants failed to meet all the statutory and regulatory requirements required for approval. Ms. Yelmini and Messrs. Coffey and Culley voting in favor of the motion: Mr. Casella voting against.

Getulio Perez (MERS) - Overpayment due to receiving a workers compensation award and not reporting it to MERS.

Action: Mr. Casella moved; Mr. Culley second to recommend to the Commission to grant the request for a waiver of repayment of an overpayment as Mr. Perez met all the statutory and regulatory requirements required for approval. Unanimous decision.

Gina Layman (SERS) - Overpayment due to receiving retirement benefits under a disability pension which was subsequently revoked.

Action: Ms. Yelmini moved; Mr. Casella second to recommend to the Commission to deny the request for a waiver of repayment of an overpayment as Ms. Layman failed to meet all the statutory and regulatory requirements required for approval. Unanimous decision.
