Now that you are or are soon to be an age and service retiree or disability benefit recipient, re-employment in a job covered by OPERS, including service in an elected position, may affect continuing receipt of your benefit.
In the event you become re-employed by an OPERS-covered employer, you must inform the employer that you are receiving an OPERS benefit. Potential re-employment plans should be discussed with the employer to determine whether there are any restrictions or policies on re-employment.
Employers are not required to re-hire employees after retirement.
The information provided in this section is intended to inform you of the general restrictions on re-employment. Prior to your re-employment, you should contact OPERS for specific information regarding the effect re-employment may have on your monthly benefit payment.
