Tier 1 medical retirement

I medically retired last year from LGPS with a tier one pension. I enquired if I was able to gain paid employment and what effect it would have on my pension. My old salary was 30k. My current pension is 12.6k. Does this mean I would need to earn less than 17.3k to stop my pension being reduced? 
The reply from pension provider is below. 

You cannot be better off after receiving tier 1 benefits, therefore we would compare your old salary VS your new salary + pension in payment. If your new salary + pension is higher, you could lose all the enhancement on your pension which is £6307.82pa.

Until we know all of the facts including salary and employer details etc, we would not be able to determine exact amounts of the impact.
