Retiring? Planning to work after retirement? Tell employers these two things
If you’re in the process of retiring and plan to work after retirement for a PERS-participating employer,
you need to tell your future employer the following:
- What your effective retirement date is.
- That your retirement application is in process with PERS.
Failure to provide this information to your future employer could cause you to be incorrectly hired after
retirement as a regular employee rather than a retiree-hire. Errors of this kind can negatively impact your
retirement benefits, such as delaying payments.
Future employers who need to be notified include any PERS-participating employer you plan to work for after
retirement — even your current employer, if you intend to work for them as a retiree-hire.
If you have questions,
contact Member Services for assistance.
