How much money can I make before my retirement allowance is adjusted?

You are permitted to make the difference between the amount you would have earned had you still been employed in the same position from which you retired and your disability retirement allowance. See the below example:

  • You retired as a teacher in 2004.
  • You would have earned $70,000 had you been employed as a teacher in 2014.
  • For 2014, your disability retirement allowance with COLA was $50,000.
  • For 2014, you would be permitted to make $20,000 ($70,000 - $50,000) before your disability retirement allowance is adjusted.
