Police investigate why pension was paid to man dead nearly seven years

Saskatoon police are investigating why $220,000 in pension payments have been going into the bank account of a teacher who has been dead nearly seven years.

REGINA — Saskatoon police are investigating why $220,000 in pension payments have been going into the bank account of a teacher who has been dead nearly seven years.

The man’s son sent a letter to the Teachers’ Superannuation Commission in March.

The son said his father died in September 2002.

Education Minister Ken Krawetz says nobody was notified of the death, so the pension payments continued.

The money was deposited directly into an account that had been set up in the late 1990s.

It’s not clear if the cash has been spent, but Krawetz says the commission will try to get the money back.
