Important Information from the Kentucky Retirement Systems for Cities Regarding the Reemployment of Retired Police Officers

SB 206, currently codified as KRS 95.022, and effective July 15, 2016, provides that qualified retired police officers employed by a city shall continue to receive the benefits they were eligible to receive upon retirement, but shall not accrue any additional retirement or health benefits during reemployment.  Additionally, retirement and any health contributions shall not be paid by the city to the KRS or the Kentucky Employees Health Plan on the reemployed retired officer. 

The Kentucky Retirement Systems has released information on the restrictions, qualifications and the required KRS forms for cities that hire or currently have hired retired sworn police officers or state troopers.  That information is located here. 

For any questions on SB 206 contact Andrea Shindlebower Main, Personnel Services Specialist at 800.876.4552.
