A.04 Exceptions to earnings limitations for members who retired 7/1/2010 or after (formerly 9.05.01)

Marked obsolete 07/01/2018

OBSOLETE section - MPSERS retirees who return to work to a MPSERS reporting unit may have an impact on their pension and insurance premium subsidy. The retiree and the employing reporting unit have an important responsibility in this process.

  • The retiree is responsible for understanding the working after retirement rules and how they affect their pension and insurance premium subsidy. Resources for retirees are available on the ORS member information website for retirees that return to work.
  • The reporting unit is responsible for accurately reporting retirees to ensure the guidelines of the working after retirement rules are met.

For that reason, this section no longer applies.


Critical Shortage

A retiree eligible to be reported in a critical shortage position (one who retired on any effective date, who has been retired for 12 months or more, is hired directly by the reporting unit and has been reported in a critical shortage position for less than a total of three years) could work without earnings limitations for no more than three years in a critical shortage position or until July 1, 2018, whichever came first.

Exceptions for retirees who retired on July 1, 2010 through October 1, 2010 and return to work in a university

There is no earnings limit on postretirement earnings from:

  • Employment of a former teacher or administrator who becomes employed in a teaching or research capacity or in a program-department direction capacity by a university that is considered a reporting unit. These include Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Ferris Stare University, Lake Superior State University, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, and Western Michigan University.
