Payment of benefits pending final determination.
The department will continue to pay monthly benefits when a disability board determines that a retiree's disability has ceased until there is a final determination from which no appeal is taken. The department will pay either the retiree's monthly service retirement allowance or monthly disability retirement allowance, whichever is less. Any retroactive adjustment required as the result of the final determination will be made after the appeal period has passed.
