Rehired Retirees - Pension benefits suspended after working 1,040 hours

Georgia law limits the pension benefits for ERS, JRS, and LRS retirees who work more than 1,040 hours for a covered employer in a calendar year.  If this applies to you, ERSGA will send you a letter advising that your monthly pension benefit will be suspended for the rest of the calendar year.  The 1,040 hour limit automatically resets every January and monthly pension benefits begin again in January.

You can find more information about the Rehired Retiree restriction in our 2015 Retiree Newsletter.
