City of Memphis Pension

City of Memphis employees do not pay into Social Security and, therefore, are not eligible for Social Security benefits from City employment.

City employees who work any part-time employment during their career where Social Security was deducted, will receive a penalty on Social Security benefits when they start receiving those benefits because of the fact they're in a government pension plan.  This is called the Pension Windfall Elimination Act.
