Retired state workers collect pension, paycheck

An investigation by The Hartford (Conn.) Courant shows that more than 500 of the 3,856 state employees who participated in the state's Retirement Incentive Program are receiving bi-weekly paychecks in addition to their pension.  The retirement incentive was intended to cut annual salary costs, but the state has rehired over 500 retirees for "temporary" work.  "And pay records obtained from the state comptroller show that 400 of them — who get a total of $1.8 million a month in pension payments — also received more than $600,000 in the regular two-week payroll of Sept. 11, a rate of $1.2 million a month."
