The Post Employment Program (PEP) provides employees who are ending employment with the County with the opportunity to save money on taxes.
To qualify for this program, the employee must have at least 5 years of service in a regular position and be a member of one of the following bargaining units: Management, Unrepresented, Confidential, LIUNA*, SEIU*, RCDDAA, RSA and LEMU. When the employee separates from the County, their leave balances are contributed to the Post Employment Program. Instead of having the amounts paid directly to the employee and taxed at the higher supplemental rate, these funds are deposited into a tax-deferred account for the employee. For specific guidelines related to your bargaining unit, please click on the brochures below.
*LIUNA and SEIU employees must have at least 5 years of service and retire to participate in this plan.
