Michigan Public School Employees Retirement System (MPSERS) Policy

Michigan law requires that every employee of a publicly supported community college be a member of the Michigan Public School Employees Retirement System, unless they are eligible to be a member of an optional retirement plan, as provided by law.  Anyone who receives wages from Northwestern Michigan College (other than student employees) automatically belongs to the retirement system unless they have opted into the optional retirement plan.

If any provision(s) of this policy or set of bylaws conflicts with laws applicable to Northwestern Michigan College, including the Community College Act of 1966, the Freedom of Information Act, or the Open Meetings Act, as each may be amended from time to time, such laws shall control and supersede such provision(s).
