Rise in disability retirements plague funds

Beth Musgrave and Delano R. Massey of the Lexington Herald-Leader used local records to find that the city's pension fund for police and firefighters is ripe for abuse: "Police officers who have run afoul of the law or departmental policy have retired on disability pensions before internal investigations could be completed or discipline handed down." More than a third of pension benefits go to disabled former employees, while the comparable figure for state police is 3 percent.
