Which Plan Am I In - Reemployment

Posted on
My niece worked two years for the State at a benefits covered position prior to 2011. After a few years absence, she has recently been reemployed with the same agency. Will the new 2011 pension rules apply (with regard to vesting and personal contributions), or will she be eligible for the old MSEP 2000 plan?
If your niece worked for the state as described in a MOSERS (or MPERS) benefit-eligible position prior to January 1, 2011, she would most likely be in the MSEP 2000.  The date on which she was first hired in a benefit-eligible position determines her plan membership.  For more information about plan eligibility, see the  Which Plan am I in? section of our website. MOSERS members can check their plan membership by logging into their secure Member Hompage, clicking on Estimates, then Estimate Your Retirement Benefit or by looking at their Annual Benefit Statement available via Online Documents. Also, MOSERS benefit counselors are available by phone at (800) 827-1063, by online chat, and by walk-in visits to our Jefferson City office Monday-Friday 7:30—4:30 if she would like more information about her specific situation.
