AGO 1969 No. 12 >  July 15, 1969
OFFICES AND OFFICERS - CITY - POLICE OFFICERS - PENSIONS - WIDOWS - COMPUTATION
OFFICES AND OFFICERS - CITY - POLICE OFFICERS - PENSIONS - WIDOWS - COMPUTATION (1) The amendment contained in § 26, chapter 209, Laws of 1969, Ex. Sess., deleting the proviso in § 1, chapter 140, Laws of 1961 (RCW 41.20.085) under which certain police widows' pensions were to be reduced by the amount being received "under social security or any other pension grant," is applicable so as to prospectively eliminate this offset factor in the case of those widows who began receiving such pensions prior to the effective date of the 1969 amendment. (2) The two percent per year post-retirement pension increase which is provided for by § 35, chapter 209, Laws of 1969, Ex. Sess., is to be computed on the basis of the pension benefit payable on the effective date of the 1969 amendment rather than that which was payable at the time chapter 209, Laws of 1969, Ex. Sess., was passed by the legislature.
