CWUP 2-30-210 Rehiring Retirees

(1) Rehiring Retirees Policy

(A) The Rehiring Retirees policy provides guidance and direction to appointing authorities when hiring an

individual who has previously retired under either the Public Employees Retirement System (PERS), Teachers Retirement System (TRS), Law Enforcement Officers and Fire Fighters’ (LEOFF) retirement systems and the CWU Retirement Plan (CWURP).

(B) This policy is to be used in conjunction with applicable RCW, WAC, collective bargaining agreements, retirement plan documents, Department of Retirement Systems (DRS) guidelines, and any university procedures guiding recruitment activities.

(C) Central Washington University recognizes the value of hiring individuals who have previous experience working in the public service arena. 

(2) Policy Principles

(A) This policy is guided by the following principles:

1. Certain retirees who are rehired are limited to the number of hours they can work without impacting their current pension.

2. Rehiring of retirees from the PERS, TRS, LEOFF and CWURP plans complies with all applicable RCW’s, WACs and retirement plan documents.

3. In order to maximize the availability of these individuals appointing authorities must follow specific procedures as outlined by the Human Resource Department to rehire a retiree.

4. The Human Resources Department will develop procedures for the rehiring of retirees. (CWUR 3-40-150 Rehiring Retirees)
