Yes, once the position you will be returning to has been determined, paperwork will be necessary to alert the retirement system that you are actively employed. If returning in a part-time position, it is possible your retirement benefits will continue. If returning in a full-time position, you will have to select from a list of options to continue or discontinue retirement benefits.
