Pro-Rated Working After Retirement Limit the Year You Retire

If you retire in a month other than July, the 550-hour limit is applied on a pro-rated basis for the rest of that school year.

  • The pro-rated limit applies only during the school year in which you retire.
  • When the new school year begins July 1, the limit increases to the full, 550-hour limit and remains at that level for future school years.
  • The limit is per school year at all covered employers.

Example

If Jane retires January 1, she can begin working February 1, but is limited to 275 hours through June 30, the end of the school year. When the new school year begins July 1, the limit increases to the full 550 hours.
