WORKING AFTER RETIREMENT

If a retiree decides to be employed again in a school, the retiree should first get a letter from the Board of Education explaining exactly what the retiree will be doing.  The retiree should then send a copy of that letter to  the NJ Div. of Pensions and Benefits and ask for a letter explaining what impact the employment may have on his/her pension and health benefits. 

It is not sufficient to get the information verbally from the B.O.E., friends or from the NJ Div. of Pensions and Benefits.  Having the details in writing provides the retiree with protection if questions arise later. 

Please read this information about working after retirement.
