Pension Abuse Suspected at Special Needs Agency

BOSTON -- State Treasurer Steven Grossman is investigating whether a troubled Merrimack Valley government agency that educates special needs students has become a haven for pension abuse by listing numerous people as employees in order to help them boost their state pensions, when in fact they did little or no work.

Investigators want to know whether people who reported working for the Merrimack Special Education Collaborative, whose executive director took a leave of absence last month amid allegations of excessive salaries and perks to insiders, were genuine state employees.
