C. Darryl Mickey (SERS) - Mr. Mickey's pension was subject to a QCDRO and 40% of his benefit was given to his ex-spouse. The Supreme Court ruled that the trial court made an error in determining spousal entitlement to a portion of the disability pension so that the ex-spouse had been paid more than she should. Mr. Mickey claims he has been underpaid and seeks the difference not from his ex-spouse but rather from SERS.

D. Beverly Trillo (MERS) - (optionee) Overpayment due to spouse receiving wrong benefit due to incorrect wage information.

E. Elizabeth Turner (MERS) - (optionee) Overpayment due to spouse receiving wrong benefit due to incorrect wage information.

F. Leonard Young (MERS) - Overpayment due to receiving a social security disability award and not reporting it to MERS.

2. Requests for Change of Repayment Rate

Due to changed circumstances, Michael Cozzolino is seeking a change in the rate of repayment from all of his SERS benefit ($4,441.17) to $2,100 per month for approximately 65 months.
