Re-Employment After You Retire

A retired member of the State Patrol Plan can return to state employment and continue to draw his or her monthly retirement benefits. Upon returning to state employment, a retiree would begin contributing to whichever retirement plan generally would cover the new employment. In most cases, a retiree would contribute to the General Employees Retirement Plan.

A retired member of the State Patrol Plan, who has not reached the mandatory retirement age of 60, can return to a position covered by the State Patrol Plan and continue to receive monthly benefits. They would begin contributing to the State Patrol Plan again, and would need five years of service to qualify for a monthly benefit that would be added to the existing benefit.
