Fiscal Year 2023 Salary Supplement

Senate Bill 251 also includes a one-time salary supplement of $500.00 for pensioners who retired prior to October 21, 2022. This one-time payment will be included with pensioner’s November 30, 2022 monthly pension benefit.

Note: Pensioners are only eligible for either the $500 one-time supplement as a pensioner or the $500 one-time supplement as a State employee (for example, substitute or casual/seasonal), but not both payments. Pensioners who are paid the supplement as active employees should be aware that these monies will be deemed wages and will count toward the $40,000 earnings limit.

Please contact the Office of Pensions at 302-739-4208 or pensionoffice@delaware.gov with any questions regarding the Post-Retirement Increase or one-time salary supplement.
