Q Did the 2010 Mississippi Legislature amend Section 25-11-127 requiring a 90 day separation period before a public retiree may be reemployed on a limited basis?

A Yes. Section 25-11-127 now provides that a retiree must be retired for not less than 90 consecutive days from his or her effective date of retirement, or such later date as established by the PERS Board of Trustees, before he or she may be reemployed on a limited basis. This basically replaces the 45-day separation period with a 90-day separation period effective July 1, 2011.
