Working After Retirement Limit Waiver Extended through December 31, 2021

DESE-announce

In August 2020, Governor Parson approved a request from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to temporarily waive portions of the state statutes that limit the number of hours worked and amount of salary earned by retirees working for covered employers in temporary, part-time or substitute positions.

This action was designed to help alleviate the potential shortage of substitute teachers and/or school support staff members during the 2020-2021 school year. The governor approved their request. The work limit waiver was set to remain in effect for the duration of the governor’s general emergency order declaring a state of emergency.

On August 27, Governor Parson ended this executive order declaring a general state of emergency. However, he issued a new, more targeted executive order that allows many of the statutory or regulatory waivers, including the work limit waiver, to remain in effect through December 31, 2021. This more targeted approach acknowledges that while progress has been made, there is a need for continued support in areas such as health care and education.

Retiree work limits will continue to be waived until January 1, 2022. At that time, We will contact retirees who are working for covered employers with information about their personal work limits and provide each with a new Working After Retirement Record form on which to track their work.
