Plaintiff filed application for disability benefits with State Universities Retirement System of Illinois (SURS) from on-the-job accident. Plaintiff then received monthly benefits, retroactively. SURS learned worker's compensation settlement Plaintiff had received for same period of time. A SURS participant is required to reimburse SURS for benefits received for same period of time her workers' compensation award was also payable. The actual date workers' compensation award was paid is irrelevant. (HOLDER WHITE and STEIGMANN, concurring.)
