National Save for Retirement Week
Peach State Reserves (PSR) is participating in National Save for Retirement Week, October 16-22, 2016. We want to encourage you to take full advantage of your retirement planning resources.
Are you saving enough for retirement?
Did you know to live comfortably during retirement, you will need 70% to 100% of your pre-retirement income? Even with other savings, pension(s), and Social Security, you may still need to consider enrolling in or increasing your contributions to PSR.
If you are eligible for PSR or already have an account, you can find out more about your retirement needs or enroll in or increase your contributions to PSR by visiting the GaBreeze website.

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.
