DiMasi had been collecting about $5,000 per month from the state.
He was sentenced to eight years in prison last week for accepting kickbacks.
The board will hold a forfeiture hearing later to determine whether DiMasi should lose his pension for life.
He has been ordered to report to prison on November 16.
