It is now easier for retirees to return to schools

Public Act (PA) 267 of 2020 was signed into law on December 29, 2020, and addresses rules concerning working after retirement as a substitute teacher and working in a critical shortage position. The critical shortage exemption has been extended until July 1, 2025, and removed the three-year maximum that a retiree can work in a critical shortage position.

How to return to work

If you are interested in supporting Michigan schools in this time of need, contact your local school district(s) to find the list of available positions and the next steps to apply.  Many districts list this information online for your convenience. 

Update from ORS

ORS is working on updating its pension impact estimator module, but in the meantime, their website has been updated with the specifics based on retirement date.  The rules are different depending on whether you retire before July 1, 2010, or on or after July 1, 2010. Click on the corresponding button below to view the rules specific to when you retired.

The passing of HB4694 demonstrates that our voices have been heard. This new law shines a light on the positive impact retirees can have for Michigan schools.  Being part of MARSP is about being a part of a community that is advocating and working towards change for public school retirees.  This would not have been possible without support from members like you; thank you!

As you return to the buildings and share your story with other retired school personnel, encourage them to become a member of MARSP.  The greater our membership, the more impact we will have on positive change for retirees and Michigan schools.
