ORS State Police Retirement System

Welcome

Welcome to the Michigan Office of Retirement Services (ORS) website for the Michigan State Police. Membership in the retirement plan is automatic for enlisted officers who have completed recruit school and subscribed to the constitutional oath of office before June 2012.

If you became part of the Michigan State Police in June 2012 or later, you are a member of the Pension Plus Plan. Visit the Pension Plus website for more information.

If you work for the Michigan State Police but are not an enlisted officer, you may have retirement benefits as a State of Michigan employee. See if you're a member of the State Employees' Retirement System.

We encourage our enlisted Michigan State Police members to come back often for important information.

What's New

Changes to Insurance Eligibility for Children

Public Act (PA) 158 will take effect on Feb. 13, 2024. The new law allows for a child to remain on retiree insurance until the month in which that child turns 26, regardless of enrollment in post-secondary education or dependency status for tax purposes. For more information, please see Dependent Coverage.

If you wish to enroll a child who is now eligible as a result of this change, you may do so as soon as March 1, 2024 by completing and submitting an Insurance Enrollment/Change Request (R0452H) and all required proofs on or before February 29, 2024. When ORS receives your enrollment request and required proofs , coverage will be effective the first of the following month, if your request is received prior to September 1, 2024. If ORS receives your enrollment request and required proofs on or after September 1, 2024,coverage will start the first of the sixth month after receipt.

Public Act 4 of 2023 — Retirement State Tax Changes

Public Act (PA) 4 of 2023, also known as the Lowering MI Costs Plan, takes effect Feb. 13, 2024.

PA 4 of 2023 amends the Income Tax Act of 1967 to allow all retired members of the Michigan State Police Retirement System (SPRS) who receive a pension to be exempt from state income tax beginning with the 2023 tax year.

 Michigan’s 2023 tax return, forms, and instructions (e-file and paper format) incorporate all retirement and pension benefit subtraction options – including those created in the new law. Retirees who filed their taxes prior to the law’s effective date need not file an amended return. The Michigan Department of Treasury will work impacted returns as they are received and prepare them for release after the law’s effective date. For more details, see the Michigan Department of Treasury website.

The Office of Retirement Services will continue to evaluate what the new law means for our members. Please consult a tax professional regarding any questions you may have. For direct information and the exact language of PA 4 of 2023, you can review the full law here

Our new look online

Our website is getting a new look. As part of a project to modernize websites for all State of Michigan executive branch departments, we will be launching a new website in the coming weeks.

miAccount begins using MiLogin on Nov. 20

Beginning on Nov. 20, the Michigan Office of Retirement Services (ORS) adopted the State of Michigan single sign-on standard, MiLogin, for miAccount. MiLogin is the same gateway used for other State of Michigan applications like renewing your license plate tags with the secretary of state or filing an unemployment claim.

This new standard requires authentication before you can log in to miAccount. It also provides stronger security for your personal information, including multifactor authentication (MFA). You will be able to set your preferences in MiLogin to complete the MFA process with a text or call to the phone number on your account.

While the migration process is generally pretty straightforward there are some things you need to know before starting. Please also find the additional tools below.

To use MiLogin you will need:

  • A user ID that is unique within MiLogin.
    If your miAccount user name is already in use by someone else who uses MiLogin, you will need to create a new user ID for MiLogin.
  • An email address that is unique to you.
    If you and your spouse share an email address, create a new unique email address with your email provider.
  • A phone number that you can respond to during MiLogin registration.
    You will receive a text message or call to a phone number during your MiLogin registration. When asked for your phone number during the MiLogin registration, supply a phone number where you can be reached within the next five minutes.
  • If you are a retiree, the net amount of your last pension payment.
    In miAccount, you will be asked to verify information about your account. If you are a retiree, you will be asked to supply the net amount of your last pension payment. The payment amount must be entered without a dollar sign or comma. If your last net pension payment amount was $1,234.56 you will enter 1234.56. You can find your net pension payment amount on your most recent bank statement. If your pension is deposited into more than one account, you will need to add up the amounts and then enter the total net amount.
