All current and newly retired members can return to work and still receive benefits. However, if you are returning to a position covered by PERF, you must have a separation of employment from any PERF-covered position for a period of at least 30 days from your effective date of retirement. Your effective retirement date is the first day of the month for which you were paid retirement benefits. A PERF member's application for retirement benefits is void if the member has an agreement, prior to their retirement, with a covered employer to become re-employed in a covered position.
For any retiree who is re-employed in a covered position, a second retirement benefit will be calculated and added to the original benefit at the time the person retires from re-employment. The retiree can submit an application for retirement benefits within six months of their effective date of benefits.
Regardless of age, if a retired member comes back to work in a covered position, they will be re-enrolled in the fund and employer contributions shall recommence.
