Return to Work Rules Modified


At the September 23, 2021, meeting the CTPF Board of Trustees took action and amended the Return to Work Rules to define “Days” as excluding an in‐service day that a retired teacher must attend in order to serve as a substitute teacher. The in‐service days do not involve classroom teaching and therefore do not constitute re employment as a “teacher,” as referenced in Section 17‐149 of the Pension Code.  

Section III.E.107 of the Return to Work Rules, “Definition of a Day,” has been changed to include the section italicized below: 

III.E.107 Definition of a Day. For purposes of this Article, a retiree shall be deemed to have worked a “day” when an Employer reports the retiree worked for compensation as a Teacher for at least one hour in any calendar day. However, a “day” shall not include an “in service” day that the retiree must attend in order to qualify as a substitute.
