B. 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.
C. 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.
