Duluth city retirees were overpaid, council to decide whether to collect

Author:

More than 100 former Duluth city employees received miscalculated retirement benefits from the Public Employees Retirement Association for years. On Monday, the Duluth City Council will decide whether those retirees now have to pay back $305,000 in excess money, the News Tribune reports. “It wasn’t their error. These people are on fixed incomes, and they have bills to pay. This is a situation where the city has an opportunity to make things right," City Councilor Linda Krug said.

The newspaper notes, regardless of the decision, retirees will receive smaller payments in the future. Current city employees who overpaid their retirement accounts would also be reimbursed.
