Employing Retired Persons

Section 3.T – Employing Retired Persons

Retired persons may be re-employed in accordance with the needs of Vance-Granville Community College, Social Security regulations, and policies regulating the Teachers’ and State Employees’ Retirement System. The N.C. General Assembly has legislated that every state retiree must have a defined break from state employment service before any reemployment with the state. For those who retire after October 1, 2005, a six-month break with absolutely no service rendered to a state employer is required to protect the tax-exempt status of the Teachers’ and State Employees’ Retirement System. Pre-existing agreements between a state employer and a retiree to return to work following retirement are also prohibited. Vance-Granville Community College limits retirees’ service to hourly part-time contracts as an indication of the short-term nature of their re-employment.
