How MPSERS

Calculates your Benefits

If you elected 4% DC Plan

  • Benefits under the defined benefit system are frozen and starting in 2012 you will be in a defined contribution plan. You have a 4 percent employer contribution going to a 401k. Employees would qualify for a 1.5 percent multiplier on all existing accrued benefits.

2012 Changes Pension Reform

This is the default if you didn’t elect a choice on Miaccount

Different Multipliers: You picked one of four options

  • Maintain 1.5% multiplier with added cost
  • Maintain 1.5% multiplier until you reach 30 years then switch to 1.25%
  • Reduce your multiplier to 1.25% for the balance of your career with no added increase
  • 4% deposited in a retirement account
slide15

2012 Changes Healthcare

  • If hired before 2008, you will have a maximum of 80% Healthcare subsidy and pay 3% into the Retiree Healthcare Fund
  • If you chose to opt out of the retirement healthcare you do not pay 3% in Retiree Healthcare Fund and receive a matching contribution (2% employee / 2% employer) into a personal healthcare fund
slide16

2012 Changes Healthcare

  • Hired since July 2008, you will have a graded subsidy, 10 years 30% with an additional 4% each year worked, maximum of 80%
  • If you are retired and age 65 or older on January 1, 2013 no change in subsidy
    • maximum 90%
