US Overpaid Teamsters Pension Counting Dead Participants

Gee I wonder how many of the “dead” people counted had signed up for survivors benefits, and still have spouses receiving money. I wonder if some of Yellow’s accounts work for the government now?

Good point my mom collected after my stepfather passed...
I wish the people that wrote/posted this article would take things like survivor benefits into account. I hadn't even considered that. I was just snickering and assumed the worst and I am pro union
Did you all read this part of the article?

"He said he doesn't fault Central States for the overpayment. The plan has been "more than cooperative" helping calculate the estimates his office used and continues to work closely with OIG staff, Novak said."

That seems to indicate Central States would have indicated which payments were "survivor benefits."

No I didn't for sure.

Think about. If the so-called "dead people" were "survivor benefits" cases, the payee would be the spouse who would be very much alive. The payee of benefits couldn't be the deceased retiree because his/her spouse wouldn't be able to cash checks in the deceased's name.

I get that....I'm just saying I will wait for it to develop....
 
I doubt anyone will investigate because there is nothing to investigate........ Has anyone heard of Bloomberg Law News before this? Not me! And the PBGC Inspector General found the accounting error? Sounds like Fake News to me.

Well that settles it. If one individual on TB never heard of Bloomberg Law it's got to be fake. Nothing to see here! :duh:
(I hope I wake up from this bad dream)

And many of us digest what we hear and read and sift through the information and make reasonably intelligent judgements about the accuracy of said information. Good luck on your photo shoot by the way. Will you post the photo here so we all can be proud that one of our own has attained such a lofty status? :smile new:

I'm surprised you're not familiar, that's Mrs Bloomberg's son or daughter, I can't remember which.
