Former Waltham Police Chief Thomas LaCroix has applied for a retirement benefits package, according to Waltham Retirement Board Director Joseph Juppé.
The Waltham Retirement Board, which includes five members, will take up the application during its July 24 meeting at 4:30 p.m., according to Juppé. The meeting will be held at Waltham City Hall.
LaCroix, who resigned earlier this month after being sentenced for attacking his wife at their Maynard home in 2012, submitted the retirement application on July 11, the day after his resignation, Juppé said.
Specifically, LaCroix applied for a normal retirement package, known as “superannuation,” Juppé said. However, Juppe said he did not know how LaCroix’s conviction could impact his eligibility for benefits. He said he would have the board’s attorney look at that issue.
“I don’t know what the crime is involved," Juppé said.
As for the public learning dollar amounts for the pension, Juppé said he would not disclose how much LaCroix could be eligible.
“I just don’t do that.” Juppé said.
Juppé said he would ask the board’s attorney whether he is required to disclose LaCroix’s pension details.
Under the board’s rules, employees with at least 20 years of service are eligible along with workers who have 10 years of service by age 50, Juppé said. The board is considered a separate entity from the Waltham city government and is overseen by the Public Employees Retirement Administration Commission, Juppé said.
LaCroix was on paid leave for around one year immediately following his arrest, during which he made $197,000.
