Pensions preclude jobs: PM

STATE employees will no longer be able to supplement their pensions by taking other government jobs, Prime Minister Hun Sen said in a directive issued Wednesday.

Until Wednesday, recipients of retirement or disability pensions could add to their income by taking jobs elsewhere in the government. Under new regulations designed to ease pressure on the state’s already overstreched pension system, employees can choose the higher-paying option between their pension and a salaried job, but can’t have both.

The prime minister ordered all government ministries to register the names of employees who receive state pensions with the Ministry of Social Affairs. Until then, state pensions will be frozen, he said.
