Reemployment Issues

Retirement is both an end and a beginning. It’s the end of a working career-or at least the career as it had been structured to that point-and it’s the beginning of a changed life. In some cases that change includes a change of jobs, and in some cases it means going back to work for the government, at least on a part-time basis. Note: If you are drawing Social Security benefits, reemployment may cause a reduction in those benefits due to an earnings test.
