Act 2004-63 Affects Retirees Working After Retirement


The Pennsylvania General Agreement passed and Governor Edward Rendell signed a new law into effect on July 4, 2004, that expands the period of time and conditions under which PSERS retirees may return to Pennsylvania public school employment without loss of their monthly retirement benefit.  Originally proposed in Senate Bill 200, the new rules are contained in what is known as Act 2004-63.  This law specifically defines the ability of a PSERS retiree to be employed by a Pennsylvania public school in emergency, shortage of personnel and extracurricular situations.
