Hi
I posted in PA forum but was suggested to post here.

My in law is a nj state employee.
We moved to PA, and would very much love them to retire near us. Hubby only child. Grandkids, health etc.

In-law will receive nj state health and pension when he retires.
Can he retire in PA and Receive benefits?
Thx

Last time I checked we lived in america. Yes, you can retire to anywhere you want to in the united states. You can even retire to another country if you like.

Yes, just make sure your health insurance covers you when you move to PA., it should. My husband was a state employee and we plan to move to Texas.

Whoever told you no is dead wrong.

I know of many ex NJ State employees who have moved to states such as PA, FL, NC, GA, NY, VT....all have kept their NJ provided pension benefits & coverages. I don't know who told you no but they apparently had no connection or were familiar with any ex NJ (or any other state) employee and must have just been guessing.

Yes you can also your insurance should be ok in PA if not it's a jump across the border.
Now say if you moved to Montana the insurance may be out of network and dam near useless

As others have said, the answer is yes. In-law should check on health insurance, all of them, medical, dental, and prescription, but AFAIK it won't be an issue. Biggest plus is that pension won't be taxed in PA.

Yes. In fact many, many NJ residents retire somewhere else. Many of which do so to avoid NJ's insane estate tax. Even people who die without enough money to qualify for the federal estate tax are still clipped by the NJ estate tax. You can move to any other state and your benefits are still good. If you retire too young to qualify for medicare, you may run into problems with your health insurance, but if you are retiring that young, it is probably the least of your problems.
