Retired former employees that are rehired in Katy ISD may be subject to surcharges set by the Texas Retirement System. Any TRS-retiree seeking full or part-time employment with Katy ISD must validate they have not been employed by a TRS-covered employer for 12 consecutive, calendar months. TRS-retirees that desire to work as a substitute are NOT subject to the 12-month guideline, but are subject to all TRS guidelines and any incurred surcharges.
Surcharges apply to the employment of any retiree who:
retired after September 1, 2005 and
is working a TRS-eligible position (half-time or more)
combining substitute work and half-time employment
**Exceptions could be made for TEA defined hard-to-fill positions**
Surcharges do not apply to retirees working:
as a substitute as defined by TRS
less than half-time
retired before September 1, 2005
Rehired retirees who signed an employment contract with KISD prior to July 1, 2016 are grandfathered.
