NJ Retirees Back To Teaching

A5576 was passed unanimously out of committees of both houses today. The new law would:

Permit [a] school teacher who is retired from TPAF to return to employment during public health emergency and state of emergency for COVID-19 pandemic, for up to two years without reenrollment in TPAF.

Some detail on what should be enacted shortly:

This bill would permit a certificated teacher who retired from the Teachers’ Pension and Annuity Fund (TPAF) to return to work full time with a board of education in a position of critical need, as determined by the State Commissioner of Education, without being reenrolled in the TPAF if reemployment commences during the period of the public health emergency and state of emergency declared due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If the retired teacher returns to work with the former employer, it must occur more than 180 days after the retirement. This bill will permit the teacher to receive the TPAF retirement allowance as well as a salary. The bill permits the return to work under a contract for one year, which may be renewed only for one additional year

A5576 Permits school teacher who is retired from TPAF to return to employment during public health emergency and state of emergency for COVID-19 pandemic, for up to two years without reenrollment in TPAF.
