Claim for Unpaid Retired Pay Due Upon Death of Military Member
B-185464: Aug 3, 1976
- Full Report:
The State court-appointed committee which had custody of a retired Navy member's property during his lifetime requested review of the settlement disallowing its claim for retired pay due to the member at the time of his death. The unpaid retired pay due the member, who died without a designated beneficiary or relatives, may not be paid to the committee since the authority of the committee ceased upon the member's death, and the committee was not the legal representative of the member's estate. However, the claim for retired pay for a legal representative of the estate will be considered upon presentation.
