A Long Island attorney must repay theNew York state retirement system more than $600,000 for pension payments he collected but was ineligible for, state Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli announced last week.

DiNapoli revoked Albert D'Agostino's pension after finding that he had been incorrectly listed as an employee of the Nassau County Planning Commission, the Valley Stream Union Free School District, Lawrence UFSD, and North Merrick UFSD for periods ranging from three to 23 years while was working as an independent contractor, the comptroller's office said. From August 2002 through March 2008 he collected $605,874 in pension payments.
