Iowa Rule Allowing Retired Nurses To Work Expiring

February 17, 2014, 5:07 AM

Iowa Rule Allowing Retired Nurses To Work Expiring
SIOUX CITY, IA -

An Iowa law that allows retired health care professionals to return to work part time has helped make sure there were enough nurses, but it's due to expire this summer.

Some groups argue the law is no longer needed, but Iowa hospitals want the exception extended.

The exception allows public health care workers to return to work just a month after retiring. And if they work to for a public hospital workers can collect benefits from the Iowa Public Employees Retirement System while earning a second benefit check.

Officials with the state retirement system say this practice adds costs because retired workers earn more benefits than younger ones.

Iowa Hospital Association spokesman Scott McIntyre says keeping this exception helps hospitals find needed workers.
