It has been an exciting week for this blogger. On Tuesday a group of us (Matt Fogg, Julie Pezzner, Gary Baker, Susan Ament, Mike Owen and Andy Carmine) travelled to Washington, D.C. to observe a Supreme Court oral argument and spend a few cherished moments in the chambers of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Lunch afterward with our escort for the day, Justice Randy Holland. This was like having a backstage pass at a Stones concert….maybe even trumps that. But suffice it to say it has been an awesome week and it’s only Wednesday.
So I return to the office to hear from my friend John Morgan. And as is often the case, he came bearing gifts. I will leave John to tell it:
Hey Cassandra, check out this 4/10/15 Order of the Board. Lots of references to little known and rarely-used sections of the Code. I had no idea that the carrier could unilaterally commute spousal death benefits. I also had no idea that non-resident alien surviving spouses are paid less than other surviving spouses. Do with this document what you will. Thanks. Have a great day.
The attached is an Order in the case of Mohammed Rafique Ullah (deceased) v. Kailash & Sons, Corp, dba 7-Eleven Store #18494 (4/9/15). I sincerely thank John for sharing this little repository of “fun facts” about comp that even I didn’t already know.
Bottom line: It is always better when they “put a ring on it”, but less so if you are an illegal.
