7.20.05: Obsolete - PA 464 Reporting Wages for School Improvement Facilitators and Instructional Coaches

OBSOLETE section – ORS offers tools to help you report retirees employed by your reporting unit. For accurate reporting, you must review both tools for each retiree.

  • The Member Benefit Plans section of the Reporting Website will verify that your new employee is a MPSERS retiree. In addition, the Member Benefit Plans link gives you the retirement effective date, years available in a critical shortage position, and information on employer and employee contribution rates when appropriate. This information will be specific to each employee.
  • The Working After Retirement - Employer Guide verifies the ORS Employment Class Code, if UAAL is due, and if a Detail 4 record is required.

For that reason, this section no longer applies.
