Retiree Return to Work Policy

Under IRS regulation, a bona fide separation of employment is required when retiring from a position. Retirees are required at the time of retirement to certify that no prearrangement for reemployment in any capacity with the same employer has been made for the restricted period.

If you are under age 62, the restricted period for rehire is six (6) months. If you are age 62 or over, the restricted period is sixty (60) days.

There are consequences and potential penalties for rehire before the restricted period elapses or for prearrangement of employment. For further information, please contact the State of Alaska Division of Retirement and Benefits.
