I thanked the Retirement Unit representative and asked her if her office had been receiving many inquiries similar to mine. She responded that there were some and they were increasing but that many didn't work out favorably like mine. This suggests that there are probably a lot of retirees who have experienced these reductions and aren't speaking up about them. It also strongly suggests and another issue. The payroll system of 2007 was hopelessly flawed. Who's to say how many errors persist? How can the district possibly penalize retirees within a system so flawed by their own errors? How is the payroll unit calculating these revisions? Are they based on school years starting July 1st of one year and ending in June of the next or is it some other formula? What about those like me who have money coming to them that has been delayed? Where's the interest for loss of availability and future value? And if teachers had over reported salary years, then didn't they over pay in taxes to the Internal Revenue Service and the State Franchise Tax Board? So if you're retired and have suffered reductions in your retirement payments, you need to start your inquiry to the Retirement Unit. If you're thinking of retiring, you better secure your years of service and make sure they're verifiable. That payroll catastrophe of 2007 is anything but gone.
