Check or Money Order

Note: Active members hired before July 1, 2010 and still participating in the defined benefit pension plan who intend to initiate a service credit purchase must ensure the full payment for the amount of service they wish to buy or a fully completed tax-deferred payment agreement is received in our office by 5:00 p.m. EDT, September 29, 2017.

If you wish to make a direct payment for any or all of the service credit reflected on your Member Billing Statement, prepare a check or money order payable to State of Michigan - ORS. Include your name and Member ID on the remittance. 

Send the check or money order with a copy of your Member Billing Statement to: 

Office of Retirement Services

If you prefer to make your payment in person, please note that we can only accept payments at our main office in Lansing.

Direct payments can not be used to payoff an existing TDP agreement, unless you are terminating employment.
