Working After Retirement Rules - Update


January 20, 2016

As we explained in a message sent on December 16,  a new law is in effect that changes some rules for public school retirees who return to work at a Michigan public school reporting unit after beginning their pension.

The ORS public school employee member website has been updated to reflect these changes. You may wish to review the section called Working After You Retire to understand the new rules regarding working after retirement from an employee's perspective. 

Changes to the employment class codes used to report retirees who return to work are not yet in place, so the Reporting Instruction Manual and Employer Information websites are not yet updated. 

Continue to report retirees who return to work as you have in the past, and we will inform you of any changes to that process when the class codes are in place. Check your email and the Employer Information website for updates. 

If you have any questions, please contact Employer Reporting at or 517−636−0166.
