MPSERS election window still open

If you've already selected your retirement options with the Office of Retirement (ORS), you can make changes to your elections, according to the ORS website today. The election period deadline for MPSERS members to make their retirement choices came and went at 5 p.m. last Friday. The Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) issued against the state and its enforcement of the Oct. 26 deadline remains in effect until the Supreme Court acts on the Attorney General's Emergency Motion for Stay.

The Court will have to issue a new deadline and that could come at any time. There may be no advance warning, so be prepared. If you've already made your choices, you can log in to your miAccount to review them. If you're still deciding, go to the ORS website to learn more about the options. Seek advice from your financial planner. If you don't have one, contact MEA Financial Services (800-292-1950) for advice about the best option for you. Once you're sure of your choices, make your retirement elections.
