Bill To Loosen Restrictions On Retired Teachers Passes Missouri Legislature

A bill that would loosen restrictions on retired teachers to be able to keep working has passed the Missouri legislature.

The bill would allow retired non certified employees and retired teachers to continue to work full time for up to four years.

Republican State Senator Rusty Black says that the non-certified employees include those that cook, mow the yards, and bus drivers.

Another provision of the bill would be to allow those retirees, who award their lifetime benefits to a same-sex partner to have their monthly amount increased to what they would have gotten if they didn’t choose to receive reduced benefits.

The bill is on its way to the Governor’s desk.
