A.06 Exceptions to the earnings limitations for members who retired before 7/1/2010 (formerly 9.04)
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.
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 3 years) hired directly by the reporting unit for a critical shortage position, can work without earnings limitations for no more than 3 years in a critical shortage position or until July 1, 2018, whichever comes first.
Exceptions for retirees who return to work in a university
There is no earnings limit on postretirement earnings from:
- Employment of a former teacher or administrator who returned to work in a teaching or research capacity by a university that is considered a reporting unit. These include Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Ferris State University, Lake Superior State University, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, and Western Michigan University.
Social Security Full Retirement Age
For retirees who meet Social Security full retirement age, there is no earnings limit on how much a retiree can earn while working for a reporting unit.
