Retirees returning to work:  Oklahoma Teachers' Retirement System regulations require a minimum of 60 calendar days between a retiree's last day of pre-retirement public education employment and any such post-retirement employment. Retirees may return to work as part-time employees, but only within the parameters established by the Oklahoma Teachers' Retirement System. Copies of the regulations and further information are available through the Director of Benefits.
