  • Can the Heart bill be applied here?

    Here in CT there is a presumptive heart and hypertension bill that applies to all hires before 93-94???.
    One of our retirees, who was diagnosed with hypertension and even had an angioplasty, retired normally. (with years), and 1 year later died of a heart attack (cause of death listed on certificate).His H&H was accepted by Worker's Comp.

    Now the way our pension is set up, when a retiree dies, his widow gets half his pension. If this person had retired with a WC accepted H&H disability and passed with a heart attack, his widow would have not had the pension cut in half.

    Someone the other day brought up that since he had a H&H history, he should be covered under the H&H laws and his widow show have his full pension.
    I'm on the pension board and need to research this before I bring it up to Corporate Council and the other Board members. This would potentially effect every retiree and every future retiree with an H&H accepted claim. Any insight here?

    Get your Local involved, that is one thing they are there for.

    See the Local's lawyer as well, to seek this information too.
