Labor & Employment – Public Employees – Retirement – Disability – Vested Benefits – DIP (access required)

Smith v. Teachers’ & State Employees’ Retirement System Even though, when plaintiff first went to work for the state in 1986, disability retirement benefits were more generous than they are under the 1988 plan - the Disability Income Plan (DIP) - state employees’ rights in their retirement benefits do not vest until they have worked for the state for five years. Since plaintiff’s rights in her retirement benefits did not vest until 1991, her disability retirement benefits are payable under DIP rather than the previous plan.
