Issues

Pensions

Double dipping is a term used to describe the practice of allowing government employees to “retire,” start collecting a pension and then return to work for the state while continuing to receive pension benefits. It is currently permitted in New Jersey. Banning or limiting double dipping is among the proposals in New Jersey to reduce the state pension obligation. Two companion bills, S601 and A860, were introduced in the 2012-2013 legislative session. As of August 2014 neither has reached the floor for a vote.
