WASHINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky's retirement system is being challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court.
Attorneys for a retired Jefferson County sheriff's deputy argued that the state's plan is set up so employees who become disabled could receive different benefits. They argue that the difference would be based on age.
Former Deputy Charles Lickteig's application for state disability benefits was denied because he was eligible for normal retirement benefits.
