RE:                  Forfeiture of Retirement Allowance for Dereliction of Duty by Members

DATE:            May 18, 2022

As you are aware, under G.L. c. 32, §15, a member who is charged with misappropriation of funds or convicted of an offense related to funds of the governmental unit/system or of certain enumerated crimes or crimes related to the laws applicable to his/her office or position may lose the right to his/her retirement allowance and/or accumulated total deductions. 

Attached please find an updated list, of all public employees who are no longer statutorily eligible to join a C. 32 retirement system.  Please review the attached lists (sorted alphabetically by last name and one alphabetically by board name) and notify the Commission of any updates or discrepancies, along with supporting documentation.

If you have any of the forfeited members on this list who are active in your system please contact Doreen Duane at 617-666-4446 extension 954 with the last four of your respective member’s social security number.  She will notify you whether that member is the same member that has been forfeited.

Thank you for your attention in this matter and please contact this office with any questions or concerns relative to this matter.
