Working for Same Employer After Spouse Annuity Awarded
(Posted October 9, 2014)
Question 1188: Can my wife return to work for the same employer on a part-time basis without any penalty?
Answer: There is a special work deduction for this situation. She will lose $1 of her annuity for each $2 of earnings from that employer. Unlike regular work deductions, there is no exempt amount, and deductions continue even after she reaches her full retirement age.
