What about consulting?

Consulting can be a little complicated. We strongly advise that before accepting a consulting opportunity you submit a post-retirement inquiry to ERSRI with questions about your individual situation.

Generally speaking, the post retirement rules for state agencies and municipalities apply to you if you are providing consulting services to the state, a public school, or a MERS municipality. In other words, retirees are not allowed to work for the state and as a general rule, they are not allowed to work as consultants to the state. If you were providing consulting services to a Rhode Island public school, or a MERS municipality you would have the same day count restrictions and reporting requirements as a retiree working directly for the school district or municipality.
