Science teacher teaches two students about molecules There could be a reduction in your benefit if you work after retirement for a public employer affiliated with PERA. Generally, you are limited to working 110 days/720 hours each calendar year for a PERA employer after retirement. Any work above that amount will reduce your PERA benefit for a future month.

Provisions on working after retirement are complex and retirees are responsible for submitting the appropriate paperwork, so be sure to read the Working After Retirement booklet carefully for more information.

Designated employees at certain employers and employees in certain positions are permitted to work without limit or up to a higher day/hour limit. Your employer will know the applicable working after retirement provisions.
