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 limits on post-retirement work in the Massachusetts public sector 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, MTRS retirees are allowed to work without restrictions during this time period. However, please note that the suspension of hours and earnings limits for 2022 does not apply to retirees receiving accidental or ordinary disability retirement benefits.
