Working After Retirement

Once you retire from the state of Missouri, you may decide to return to work. It is important for you to know if your monthly pension benefit will be affected.

You may work for an employer other than the state of Missouri and continue receiving your monthly pension payment.

You may return to work for the state of Missouri and continue receiving your monthly pension payment, as long as your position is not a benefit-eligible position.

If you return to work for the state of Missouri in a MOSERS or MoDOT and Patrol Employees’ Retirement System (MPERS) benefit-eligible position:

  • Your monthly pension payment will stop.
  • Depending on various factors (your plan, how long you work, etc.), you may or may not earn additional credited service during reemployment.
  • When you retire again, your monthly pension payment will equal the amount you were receiving when you returned to work plus any additional benefit you may have earned during reemployment.

Read your retirement handbook, which includes everything you need to know about reemployment and how it affects your benefit payment or contact a MOSERS benefit counselor with any questions.

Read our emails, watch our videos, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, & Rumor Central and review your Annual Benefit Statement.

Notify us when you have any significant life events (such as change in your marital status or death of a family member) that may impact your benefits.
