For all non12 month, salaried or hourly employees who are retiring, but RETURNING to work for the 2018-2019 school year please note the following:

  • You will need to complete the Notice of Intent to Retire - Regular Retirement form and the District Retirement Benefits Form. Retired employees may be considered for re‐hire (in any position) at the District’s discretion after a 30 day break in service, with an Extended Service Contract. These forms will require your supervisor's signature before they will be accepted. Return both forms to benefits@greenville.k12.sc.us.
  • If you are a full time employee and are rehired for the 2018-2019 school year, you will continue to receive checks through the summer. 2018-2019 school year salaries begin with the August 30, 2018 check for 185 and 190 day employees.
  • If you are a substitute or an hourly employee and are rehired for the 2018-2019 school year, you will receive your LAST CHECK for the 2017-2018 school year in accordance with the District’s pay period schedule.  
  • Working Retirees are eligible for the same benefits as regular employees, but subject to a salary reduction. In the past, working retirees salaries have been 5% - 10% less than the District’s published salary schedules.  The ‘18/’19 budget process will determine the working retiree salary reduction.  Human Resources will define your salary during the re-employment process.
  • If you are a retiree who returned to work in a fulltime benefits eligible position, you CANNOT be covered as a PEBA retiree. You must leave your benefits with Greenville County Schools.
  • If you are a retiree and return to work in a non-benefits eligible position, you will be subject to provisions of the Affordable Care Act and Medicare Secondary Payor Laws. This means that you may be eligible for active benefits if you do not take a 26 week break in employment. If you or any of your covered dependents are eligible for Medicare, you CANNOT be covered as a PEBA retiree and must be enrolled as an active employee under Greenville County Schools.
