Re: Question for TRS retirees
You also revoke your retirement if you are employed in any position in a Texas public educational in- stitution in any capacity (including working as a substitute and working less than full time) during the first calendar month following the effective date of your retirement. If your retirement date is May 31 but your contract or work agreement requires you to work into June but no later than June 15, you may not return to employment in Texas public education until Aug. 1. If you revoke your retirement, benefits (including any DROP or PLSO distribution and any retiree health benefits through TRS-Care) must be repaid to TRS. You must also reapply for retirement. The break in service requirement applies to both normal-age and ear- ly-age retirees and to both service and disability retirees. Volunteering to perform services that are normally provided by an employee may be considered service that revokes retirement. Working but waiving payment for service during the required break in service revokes retirement. In addition, working as a substitute during the required one full, calendar-month break in service after retirement revokes retirement.
