Governor signs bill suspending post-retirement employment hours and earnings limits for calendar year 2022, or 90 days after the end of the public health emergency, whichever occurs first.

The Governor signed H.4456, which suspends the time and earnings limits on post-retirement employment through the end of calendar year 2022, or 90 days after the end of the public health emergency declared on May 28, 2021, whichever occurs first. Thus, you may employ MTRS retirees without restrictions during this time period. However, please note that the suspension of the hours and earnings limits for 2022 does not apply to retirees receiving accidental or ordinary disability retirement benefits.
