Yes, IAs have an opportunity to earn a pension from the Town of Andover through the Andover Contributory Retirement System. (Note, this is unlike teachers, who receive pension benefits from the Massachusetts Teachers’ Retirement System).
The Andover Retirement Board is the sole authority to set employee eligibility and retiree benefits. Andover retirement plan information can be found on their website. As a summary, employees hired before July 1, 2021 earn retirement eligibly and corresponding pension benefits for working 20 or more hours per week. In April 2021, the Retirement Board changed the threshold to 30 hours per week for employees hired since July 1, 2021.
