    Sounds simple. They should have been deducting. End of. Her husband died four years ago. I must be misreading this story. “If the pension division would have been doing their audits”? There’s a 2 page list online of Agencies of the Crown whose audits are done by private sector auditors: and the School Board is on it. How much is this costing the courts? Oh My. They’re spending hundreds of thousands on bonuses, millions on patronage appointments, lost cause ferries, building renovations, etc and billions on pipe dreams; more people than ever before are hungry here (increase in food banks) and they got the widow of a cleaner in court fighting for $135/bi-weekly? Yup. Something isn’t right.

    She can't borrow $12,000 and repay it over a couple of years to provide herself with the survivor's pension but she has hired a law firm to keep half of anything she wins in court. She should be asking the District to make sure that she gets a decent interest rate for that loan. She might win something because the incompetence of the payroll administrator has caused her damages. When I call it incompetence, I am not referring to the clerk who made the error. The responsibility is at a senior level (where they get the big bucks to supervise).
