3.02.09 Student Age 19 or Older (Not Employed by a Community College)


If you have a student who is 19 years old or older who is not enrolled in and attending classes as a full-time student at your reporting unit where the student is working, he or she is a member:

  • Do report a student 19 years old or older who is working for your reporting unit at any time of the year if the person is enrolled full time as a student in a different reporting unit.
  • Do report a student 19 years old or older who is working for your reporting unit during the summer (unless the student is enrolled in and attending summer school full time.)
  • Do report an employee under age 19 if working in a permanent position and not a student. Effective July 1, 1998, PA 123 of 1998 excludes from retirement system membership anyone under the age of 19 employed by your reporting unit “in a temporarily, intermittent or irregular seasonal or athletic position,” whether a student or not.
