97B.25 Applications for benefits.

A representative designated by the chief benefits officer and referred to in this chapter as a retirement benefits specialist shall promptly examine applications for retirement benefits and on the basis of facts found shall determine whether or not the claim is valid and if valid, the month with respect to which benefits shall commence, the monthly benefit amount payable, and the maximum duration. The retirement benefits specialist shall promptly notify the applicant and any other interested party of the decision and the reasons. Unless the applicant or other interested party, within thirty calendar days after the notification was mailed to the applicant's or party's last known address, files an appeal as provided in section 97B.20A, the decision is final and benefits shall be paid or denied in accord with the decision. A retirement application shall not be amended or revoked by the member once the first retirement allowance is paid. A member's death during the first month of entitlement shall not invalidate an approved application.
