Working After Retirement

Working for a PEERS-covered employer after retirement can affect the payment of your retirement benefits. If you work for employers not covered by PEERS, or as an independent contractor in accordance with IRS guidelines, these rules do not apply.

If you are a PEERS disability retiree under age 60, visit our Working after Disability Retirement page for the guidelines that apply to you.

To continue to receive your monthly retirement benefits while working at a PEERS-covered employer, you must:

  1. Terminate all pre-retirement employment
  2. Keep a record of your part-time or temporary-substitute work
  3. Stay within the limit on hours worked

If you don't follow these rules, you will be required to reimburse PEERS for all retirement benefits paid while ineligible, including funds in a PLSO distribution, and pay contributions that would have been required.
