Is retiree’s work double-dipping?

The Plymouth retirement board is scheduled to vote Friday morning on whether to suspend a former town finance director’s annual pension over allegations he broke so-called “double-dipping” rules, a charge his lawyer denies.

The case pits Michael Daley against the retirement board on which he once served. It highlights a practice critics say skirts the law limiting how much a retired public worker can earn from government sources while tapping a taxpayer-funded pension. The case is being closely watched in pension circles, amid greater scrutiny of abuses in the retirement system.
