[Opinion]
May 5, 2015

"By implementing the requirement of a spousal survivor annuity [under the Retirement Equity Act of 1984], a whole class of non-working spouses received protection which was desperately needed. So in that speech to my friend's administrative staff, I asked them to take a broader view -- if just for a moment -- of the important task they were being asked to implement. It was valuable social policy with real, human effect which they were responsible for pulling off, and they should take a measure of pride in the work they were doing.... Congress sometimes gets it right, and there is very valuable social benefit often hidden in the day to day 'grunge' of administering what often seems to be silly rules."
