What Benefits are Payable if a Member's Death, After Retirement, is NOT Found to be a Direct Result of the Injury or Hazard That Caused the Member's Accidental Disability Retirement?

Section 101 of Chapter 32 provided a benefit to certain individuals who retired for accidental disability or ordinary disability at a time when they could not pick “Option C” and provide a lifetime benefit for their surviving spouses.  Section 101 will have virtually no applicability to those who entered service on or after April 2, 2012, except in limited circumstances where an accidental or ordinary disability retiree remarries following retirement. Please ask your retirement board for more information about this benefit if you fall into that category.
