12. What if I am under a contribution suspension for taking a hardship withdrawal from my 457 account?

If you are on a six-month suspension for taking a hardship withdrawal, that suspension will continue when you are re-employed by a public school or the State of Michigan until such time as the original six-month suspension period is over.  If you are still in the suspension period when hired by a new employer, you will not be auto-enrolled and will need to contact Voya when you are ready to start your contributions to the plan again after the suspension period is over.
