After you retire from a Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS) employer, you may return to work with a WRS employer as a rehired annuitant, provided certain requirements are met. There are no restrictions on what type of position a rehired annuitant can hold. Under the WRS, there is no limit to how much you may earn as a rehired annuitant.
After retirement, if you work for an employer not covered by the WRS there is no effect on your WRS annuity or benefits.
Who is a Rehired Annuitant?
A rehired annuitant:
- Is receiving a monthly WRS annuity*; and
- Had a valid termination; and
- Served the minimum required break in employment between retirement and returning to work; and
- Now works for an employer covered by the WRS.
*If you received a lump sum retirement benefit, you are not considered a rehired annuitant and your employer must enroll you in the WRS. Note: Individuals who receive a WRS separation benefit or lump-sum payment must abide by the valid termination and minimum break in service rules as outlined by the Department of Employee Trust Funds.
