Part Time Worker for Government Agency – Story

I have been working for Government Agency for nine years part time, working between 30 to 37 hours per week; and I was told that under his act I can only work 29 hours per week. This is going to hurt me financially. I can not work full time because I retired from the same retirement system that I work for. Is their anything that can be done to give me more hours per week?

I have heard the same story over and over. Employees have also said I don’t need coverage; but their hours were still cut to 29…


Yeesh, this is ironic. They can offer you more hours and coverage, and then you can deny the coverage ( you just can’t get marketplace tax credits). If they don’t want to do that, then they choose to move you to part-time. There is no “can’t”, this is a choice, by an agency, who works for the taxpayers, who hired the officials, who passed the law.

How does one even make sense of this? I would try talking to your employer. If i’m hearing that you are on Medicare then you can’t enroll in the individual coverage anyway.
