Appeal From Administrative Law Court
 John D. McLeod, Administrative Law Judge


Unpublished Opinion No. 2010-UP-207
Submitted March 1, 2010 – Filed March 15, 2010   


AFFIRMED


David K. Avant and Justin R. Werner, both of Columbia, for Appellant.

Brian L. Boger, of Columbia, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  South Carolina Retirement Systems (SCRS) appeals the Administrative Law Court's (ALC) dismissal of Walker's claim requesting reimbursement for the cost of purchasing additional time necessary in order to retire.  SCRS argues the ALC erred in holding it lacked jurisdiction to hear Walker's claim.  We affirm[1] pursuant to Rule 220(b), SCACR, and the following authorities:  Rule 201(b), SCACR ("Only a party aggrieved by an order, judgment, sentence or decision may appeal."); Beaufort Realty Co., Inc. v. Beaufort County, 346 S.C. 298, 301, 551 S.E.2d 588, 589-90 (Ct. App. 2001) ("A party cannot appeal from a decision which does not affect his or her interest, however erroneous and prejudicial it may be to some other person's rights and interests."); Id. at 301, 551 S.E.2d at 589 ("The word 'aggrieved' refers to a substantial grievance, a denial of some personal or property right, or the imposition on a party of a burden or obligation.").        

AFFIRMED.

HUFF, THOMAS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur. 


[1]  We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
