Retirement > Probate > Retiree > Working After Retirement

32. May I work after I retire and still receive my pension?

Yes, under SERS provisions a retired member may return to state service on a temporary basis for not more than 120 days in a calendar year. If you return to state service in a permanent position, your pension must stop immediately. You will resume membership in the SERS and receive service credit for this period of reemployment when you next retire.

A retired member may work up to 630 hours per calendar year without jeopardizing their retirement benefit and retiree medical and dental insurance coverage. The 630 hours is based upon normal hours worked as an active employee.
