Supreme Court will be ruling on MPSERS contribution

Michigan’s Supreme Court will be deciding on whether the changes made to PA 300 in 2012 were legal. The lawsuit challenges changes by the Michigan legislature to pension contribution rates, retiree healthcare contributions, the multiplier “sanction” for those opting out of the higher contribution rates, and the mechanism for refunding the contributions to individuals who opted into retiree healthcare but ultimately failed to qualify for the benefits. The MEA and AFT Michigan primarily argued that the legislative changes violated the Michigan and US Constitutions.
