Working After Retirement

Certain types of work are considered “disqualifying” once you’ve retired and have begun receiving your pension. If you engage in disqualifying employment—employment with any employer who participates in this Plan or any other employment in a craft or industry within the same geographical area—your pension payments may be suspended for the time you are back at work.

You will need to notify the SEIU Benefit Funds office in writing when your re-employment ends. Your pension benefit may need to be recalculated

Recalculating Your Benefits After a Suspension

When resuming your pension payments, your new benefit will include:

  • The amount of your previous pension payment, including any retiree increases that went into effect before your pension was suspended.
  • If your previous pension payment was calculated with a reduction for early retirement, each month of suspension will reverse one month of reduction for early retirement.
  • Any contributions made to the Pension Fund on your behalf since your pension was last calculated will increase your benefit.
