RETIREMENT SERVICES DIVISION MEMORANDUM 2010-04

December 2, 2010

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

ATTENTION:   Human Resources and Payroll Officers
SUBJECT:   Retirement Services Division Form CO-1208, "Temporary Post Retirement Reemployment"

By memorandum dated February 18, 2010 the Retirement Services Division advised of a new form for use by State agencies in lieu of Form CO-931, "Designation of Retirement System-Tier-Plan-Beneficiary" to report the temporary reemployment of retired State Employees Retirement System (SERS) and Alternate Retirement Program (ARP) members.

The purpose of this follow-up memorandum is to remind agencies that Form CO-1208, "Temporary Post Retirement Reemployment", must be completed for all retired SERS and ARP members employed on a temporary basis. In addition, agencies should take the necessary action to insure that such employees do not exceed the maximum employment for temporarily reemployed retirees provided for in Connecticut General Statutes (CGS) Section 5-164a, CGS Section 5-192v and the collective bargaining agreement between the State and the State Employees Bargaining Agent Coalition effective July 1, 1997 (SEBAC V). Specifically, pursuant to these statutory provisions, temporarily reemployed SERS Tier I, Tier II, Tier IIA and ARP retirees may work a maximum of 120 days (960 hours) in a calendar year without engaging the pension suspension provisions of SERS; a SERS or ARP retiree reemployed in a state teaching position may work up to 45.97% of a full-time teaching schedule without engaging the pension suspension provisions of SERS.

Retired SERS or ARP members who exceed either of these maximums may be required to return over paid retirement income to the date of reemployment for that calendar year.

Form CO-1208, "Temporary Post Retirement Reemployment", is fillable online and is available on the Office of the State Comptroller website at the following link: http://www.osc.ct.gov/agencies/forms/index.html/retire/index.html.  Any questions you have concerning completion of this form should be addressed to the Retirement Services Division's Data Base Unit by telephone at 860-702-3515 or by email to osc.databaseunit@po.state.ct.us 


Very truly yours,

STATE EMPLOYEES RETIREMENT COMMISSION
