    As you are probably aware, return to work provisions for SURS retirees were revised through the passage of Senate Bill 2196 and signed into law as Public Act 98-0596 by Governor Quinn on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. Some significant changes that were developed and successfully included in the new law are as follows: 1. Establishment of a common academic year (September 1) for tracking purposes. 2. Removal of the 18-week limitation. 3. Exception to the 40% threshold and financial consequences if the retiree’s position is governed by the State Universities Civil Service Act (110 ILCS 70).
