With the recent changes to the STRS retirement limitations, we remind districts about another limitation that affects individuals who retire from STRS prior to the normal retirement age (60). Since 2010, Education Code section 24214.5 has provided that individuals who retire before age 60 must wait at least six months after the date of their retirement before they can perform services within the California public school system without penalty. This includes work as an independent contractor and work for any third party employer who contracts with a public school district or community college district. If the individual performs such services prior to six months after retirement and prior to his/her own 60th birthday , any compensation earned in the position will be reduced dollar-for-dollar from his/her retirement compensation.
