In compliance with the “Return to Work“ legislation (Public Act 97-0968; HB4996), a new retiree rehire form must be submitted for approval each year for all rehired retirees. This includes status Civil Service positions. Beginning this year, approvals for all faculty (except those faculty who teach during the academic year cycle (August 16-December 31, January 1-May 15, and summer) will coincide with the process for staff and will be based off of the SURS year 9/1-8/31. A new request must be submitted for each appointment period. For Extra Help positions, a new form must be submitted for each appointment. Please note that the employment of retirees must also comply with the Civil Service rule that limits the total work hours for any Extra Help position.
Requests should be submitted using the electronic “Proposal for Re-Employment of a SURS Employer Retiree” form. The “Statement of SURS Annuity Status” form must also be completed and signed by the retiree and attached in the electronic form. Once approved, rehired retirees are then reported to SURS by the appropriate HR office. This must be done within 60 days of hire to avoid a potential penalty. While the legislation related to the rehiring of retirees is relatively new, it is an area which is being closely audited by the University itself. A recent University Audit found the University in violation of the new rules. It is imperative that rehired retirees be processed on a timely basis by Units to avoid a penalty charge from SURS to the respective Unit.
In addition to the forms above, all rehired retirees must have completed ANCRA training in order to be processed. If you have any questions about a rehired retiree completing ANCRA training, please contact Cassandra Staudacher at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Requests should be submitted at least three weeks prior to the proposed effective date of the appointment.
