Mystery In The Makings

I've gotten notes from several 2009 retirees that they are still waiting after 6 or so months of retirement without an official Notice of Entitlement. They are receiving estimated benefits that are deliberately low so that there is no possibility that the retiree will owe PERS money for overpayments. While this is very thoughtful of PERS, I'm having trouble understanding why it is taking PERS so long to get out a Notice of Entitlement. The cases I've heard about are all pretty straightforward and PERS is not *that* overworked right now. Why would retirees in June and July still be waiting for their Notices? Anyone else having this trouble with PERS? If so, it might be time for a group exorcism.

After the Kay Bell case, I'd like to think that they are doing an extra review of each individual benefit calculation. Or is that optimism run amok?
