The Brockton Retirement Office typically issues all retirement allowances on the last business day of the month. The actual checks have been mailed and the Direct Deposit file was sent in a timely manner. The direct deposit file was dated March 31, which is a Saturday. The banks do not recognize Saturday as a legal banking day. All direct deposits are pending for Monday April 02, and will be deposited on that day. We apologize for any inconvenience or undue hardship this may have caused you. If any direct deposit retiree should incur fees or penalties from their bank due to this issue, please contact the Executive Director, Jeanne Martineau at (508)580-7847.
