Balancing Objectives in Public Employee Post-Retirement Employment


Policies surrounding the re-employment of retired public employees have been written to limit actuarial risk for the underlying pension fund and avoid perceptions of revolving door arrangements or excessive compensation, while also balancing the needs of employers to ensure that sufficient numbers of skilled employees are available to fill key roles.  This report, based on a review of the 83 largest state pension plans, presents the data and policies for each plan, along with case studies, and a literature review on related research.
