Michigan Public School Employees

Introduction

The Michigan Public School Employees’ Retirement System includes Defined Contribution and the Pension Plus retirement plans.

The Pension Plus retirement plan is for Michigan public school employees who began working on or after July 1, 2010.

Pension Plus offers two types of retirement plans in one by partnering a pension component with a savings component. The pension component of your plan, also known as Defined Benefit (DB), guarantees you a retirement income once you meet age and service requirements. The savings component of your plan, also known as Defined Contribution (DC), provides you with a flexible and transferable retirement savings account that features a 50 percent (for the first 2 percent of your contributions) match by your employer. Employee contributions are placed in the Pension Plus 457 Plan and the employer match contributions are put into a separate plan, the Pension Plus 401(k) Plan.

This website only gives you details about the savings component of your plan. As a member of the Pension Plus retirement plan, you should always begin at www.mipensionplus.org where you will get information about the pension and savings components of your plan and links to your online accounts.
