the class includes anyone who had their ELB reduced by the amounts they received from a PA disability pension, or benefits under the War Veterans Act, between Apr 01 2006, and May 29th, 2012

They treated the PA pensions the exact same way SISIP did. The pension amount was taken off the gross entitlement, before they calculated taxes. So if your ELB was only $100 after they deducted the PA pension, you only paid taxes on the $100. It would be worse if they deduct the pension from the net ELB entitlement.
