Can all SURS retirees become affected annuitants?

In apition to paying the affected annuitant’s salary/wages, SIUE will have to pay SURS the same amount as the affected annuitant’s annual SURS retirement annuity. If the individual’s salary is $30,000 and the SURS retirement annuity is $28,000, SIUE will pay $58,000 to employ the affected annuitant ($30,000 to the annuitant + $28,000 to SURS). The department who employs the affected annuitant will be responsible for paying SURS the annuitant’s amount.
