Returning to work after retirement
If you return to work after retiring, you will continue to receive your pension from the plan.
You may decide to return to work after you have retired and are receiving a pension from BC's Teachers' Pension Plan. If this is the case, you will continue to receive your pension.
If you return to teaching after retirement, let your employer know you are a retired plan member. This will ensure your employer does not re-enrol you in the plan and deduct pension contributions from your pay.
If you take on a non-teaching job after retirement and your new employer participates in a different pension plan, you may be eligible to contribute to that plan. Talk to your new employer for details.
Restrictions on working for a plan employer as a retired member
If you apply for your pension but return to work for a plan employer before your first pension payment is made, you are not considered a retired member. You cannot return to work for a plan employer as a retired member until you've received your first pension payment.
Once you receive your first pension payment, you can work for a plan employer as a retired member.
