Pensionable Overtime
The amount of overtime that is pensionable for Tier 6 members is limited by a formula set by law. For ERS members, the limit is based on the State fiscal year (April 1 - March 31), and determined by the Consumer Price Index on December 31 of the previous year. The overtime limit for the current fiscal year is $15,721. PFRS members are limited to 15 percent of their regular annual salary per calendar year. Any overtime that exceeds these limits cannot be included in a member’s Final Average Salary (FAS). Visit our Tier 6 Benefit Information page for more information.
