Citation: 4 N.J.A.R. 380
Decision Date: 1980
Agency: PUBLIC EMPLOYEES' RETIREMENT SYSTEM
Synopsis: Petitioner, who had been employed by the State for over 25 years, had requested that the Board of Trustees to allow her to be examined by a physician in order to establish 'insurability' for life insurance purposes. The Board denied that request. The administrative law judge assigned to the case found that while the petitioner had never supplied evidence of insurability as required by N.J.S.A 43:15A-41.1 and N.J.A.C 17:2-3.1(b), those same statutes and regulations set forth no time limit with respect to when such evidence must be supplied. Nor had the petitioner even been informed of when such evidence had to be supplied. Accordingly, the administrative law judge concluded that the petitioner was entitled to be examined in order to establish insurability.
