This bill amends Section 45-21-54 of the General Laws in Chapter 45-21, which pertains to the retirement of municipal employees. The amendment allows retired members of the system to reenter the service for up to 90 working days in a calendar year without interrupting their pension benefits. Previously, the limit was 75 days. However, if a retired member continues to work beyond the 90-day period, their pension payments will be suspended. This rule does not apply to police officers working private details paid for by a non-governmental entity. Additionally, retired members are still eligible to serve as elected city or town council members or school committee members and receive their retirement allowance for service other than their role as a council or committee member. The bill will take effect upon passage.
