While the job might be over, the work goes on.

That’s the takeaway from the hundreds of retired teachers and education support professionals who gathered in Lansing on Monday for MEA-Retired’s annual meeting.

MPSERS study goes to Chicago firm

A Chicago-based firm, Segal Co., has landed the $140,000 contract to conduct a legislative study called for in SB 1040--now PA 300. In addition to overhauling the insurance portion of the Michigan Public School Employee Retirement System (MPSERS), the new law called for an outside firm to study the possibility of shutting down the current hybrid system and moving members to a 401(k) defined contribution system.

Timing for MPSERS changes and budget may coincide

Look for legislation before spring break that would change retirement benefits for public school employees. An eight-member, all-Republican work group has been meeting for months looking to make reforms.
