Storage Locker Broken Into - Retiree Information At Risk

Originally Posted on July 10, 2017

Retiree application forms must be maintained forever by State Law. The records in a storage vault that was broken into recently are from a time frame spanning 1920 - 1950. The retiree applications are from people who retired during those years.

One box was opened and it was the applications from the 1920's. The thief did not take anything, did not open any other boxes and moved onto the other storage units.

The records in those boxes are too fragile to scan. With the State Law, a file remains open until the last check is given to the annuitant, spouse of dependent. Only then can the file be closed. Only one box was compromised.

This is the explanation provided to us by the Pension Fund.
