Media Contact for OIG Comments on House 4821, An Act Relative to the Payment of Pensioners for Services After Retirement
On July 27, 2018, the OIG wrote to the legislature to recommend House bill 4821 be amended to establish a commission to evaluate the effect the provision would have on the Commonwealth and its retirement system. H4821 would increase the number of hours a public retiree may return to work for a public employer while still receiving a public pension. Based on past research, the OIG noted that existing monitoring and enforcement mechanisms are insufficient. In addition, the OIG wrote that any benefit to a public body must be weighed against potential costs imposed on the Commonwealth’s retirement system.
