Are there work-hour limits for retirees who return to work at the university in a part-time position (not benfit-eligible)?

Retirees who are rehired in a part-time position at the university and receive retiree insurance from the university (i.e. medical, dental, vision, etc.) and wish to continue their enrollment in these plans are advised to work no more than a .74 full-time equivalency (FTE) in all concurrent jobs.

Exceeding this FTE will result in loss of eligibility for retiree insurance benefits and being offered active medical plan coverage only (see Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act). Worked hours for rehired retirees will be tracked using the same methods as for other employees.

Retirees should contact their campus HR Generalist with any questions.
