SD Retirement System

A former Rapid City police officer is not entitled to survivor's benefits, because she and her deceased wife were not married at the time of the retirement. That's the decision of the South Dakota Supreme Court in an opinion released Thursday, Feb. 21.

The court says the couple could have legally married in another state to satisfy South Dakota's retirement laws.
