(Memphis) You know government employees get pension payments when they retire.

What you may not know is how much they make and how they manage to get two checks at once.

News Channel 3 has a list of the top pension getters in the city and county.

Some of them make more than $100,000 a year while retired.

They’ve retired from one government agency only to go to work at another.

It’s called double dipping and it’s happening at a time when pension plans are already in jeopardy.
