Creditable service surveys for MTA members

Among the many bills currently being analyzed by the legislature’s Joint Committee on Public Service are two creditable service bills which impact educators. 

House 2932 would allow qualified school teachers and Higher Ed faculty and certain professional employees, who rendered service in non-public schools after January 1, 1973, to up to four years of creditable service towards retirement. Eligible members would be required to pay an amount equal to 10 percent of regular annual compensation as of their most recent date of entry into membership in the system plus buyback interest on that amount. 

Senate 1317 would allow school nurses to receive creditable service for any non-school experience in the nursing field. Eligible members would be required to pay an amount equal to 10 percent of regular annual compensation as of their most recent date of entry into membership in the retirement system plus buyback interest on that amount.

In order to better gauge the impact of these bills the MTA is conducting a survey of members who would be eligible to buy back time if either of these bills were signed into law. This data will assist us in our lobbying efforts and should take less than five minutes to complete.
