TN Code § 8-36-801 (2014) What's This?

(a) Except as provided in this part, any retired member of the Tennessee consolidated retirement system, or of any superseded system, or of any local retirement fund established pursuant to chapter 35, part 3 of this title who accepts employment in a position covered by the Tennessee consolidated retirement system shall, as a condition of such employment, cease to draw the member's retirement allowance during the period of the employment; however, the member shall keep the member's retirement benefit in the month that the member returns to work.

(b) A retiree restored to employment shall not be required to reenroll as an active member of the retirement system, to make further contributions to the retirement system or to void the retirement payment plan elected by the member. Employees covered by the noncontributory provisions of the system in accordance with § 8-34-206 shall reenroll and accrue service. Any retiree restored to employment who reenrolls as an active member of the retirement system shall be treated as voiding any optional benefit previously elected under § 8-36-601 for purposes of in-service death benefits. Subject to the provisions of § 8-36-802(e), any such optional benefit previously elected shall be restored upon subsequent retirement.
