Pa. Senate votes to end 'triple dipping' benefits

Posted: Updated:

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania state senators have approved a bill designed to end so-called "triple dipping" in which retirees come back to work and then leave to collect unemployment benefits.

Senators voted unanimously Monday on the bill, sending it back to the House where a similar version passed unanimously in March.

Under the bill, jobless benefits would be prohibited for people who are getting pensions but come back to work under a temporary agreement designed to preserve the employee's pension or retirement pay.

The bill is aimed particularly at state workers who come back from retirement for no more than 95 days. Because the state makes them leave after 95 days or lose their pension, they're currently eligible for unemployment compensation benefits.
