NJ Politician Quits on Day She Earned Pension

State officials confirm that a veteran New Jersey politician quit her part-time government job on the day she qualified for a state pension.

The NJ Record reported Saturday that Susan Bass Levin officially retired from the state's Local Finance Board on Nov. 1. That was the day she reached 25 years of state government employment, entitling her to early retirement and lifetime health benefits.

State treasury officials told the newspaper that the 58-year-old Levin will start collecting pension checks Dec. 1 for her maximum benefit of $5,312.11. That's based on her three highest-paid years as a state employee -- when she headed the Community Affairs Department -- for an average $139,774.15.

Levin also served as mayor of Cherry Hill and deputy commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
