Flethez v. San Bernardino County Employees Retirement Ass’n

Pre-judgment interest on improperly denied retroactive disability retirement benefits began running on the date at which defendant retirement board issued the wrongful denial.  Pre-judgment interest on improperly denied retirement benefits runs not from the first date of disability or retirement for which benefits are payable but rather from the later date on which the retirement board wrongly denied the plaintiff’s application for benefits.
