Payment of rehired retirees
Requests cannot cross fiscal years. A retiree’s annual work commitment for the fiscal
year must always be less than 49% time and compensation for the fiscal year must always
be less than 49% of the authorized salary rate for the position held.
The payment type should be selected as follows:
- UGA/USG Retirees Rehired in a Faculty Position: UGA faculty can only be paid on the monthly or academic payroll. The retiree's normal
monthly contracted compensation must be less than 49% of the authorized salary for
the position held.
- UGA/USG Retirees Rehired in a Staff Position: UGA staff will be paid on the hourly bi-weekly, salaried bi-weekly, or monthly payroll
as appropriate for the position held.
- Hourly Bi-Weekly or Salaried Bi-Weekly Payroll: UGA will follow the TRS published
schedule (http://www.trsga.com/documents/FY2014MaxHrs.pdf ) of the maximum hours that a retiree can work during each month of the fiscal year.
This calculation is based on the total business days for each month, less the generally
- Monthly Payroll: The retiree's normal monthly contracted compensation must be less
than forty-nine percent (49%) of the authorized salary for the position held.
Any person who has retired from the University System of Georgia under the criteria
