Next Benefit Payment Date February 29

Return to Work (RTW)

You can go back to work full time for a TMRS participating city after retiring without any impact to your TMRS monthly retirement benefit if:

  • You return to work for a different TMRS participating city from which you retired, or
  • You return to work for the same city from which you retired more than one year after you retired.

If you return to work full time for a different TMRS participating city from which you retired, there will be no impact on your TMRS monthly benefit payments. You will continue to receive your TMRS retirement benefit each month. In addition, in your new position, you will begin to accrue a new TMRS retirement benefit.

If you return to work full time for the same TMRS participating city from which you retired more than one year after you retired, your TMRS benefit will continue to be paid to you, and you will begin to accrue a new TMRS retirement benefit.

However, if you return to work full time for the same TMRS participating city from which you retired less than one year after you retired, your TMRS benefit will be forfeited for as long as you continue to work, but you will begin to accrue a new TMRS retirement benefit.

For additional RTW information, contact the TMRS' Member Service Center at 1-800-924-8677.
