  • Hour Tracking for Non-Benefit-Eligible Employees

    Mar 14, 2024, 8:10 AM By MOSERS
    We sometimes get asked when the tracking period starts for hourly employees hired into non-benefit-eligible positions.

    There is no tracking period from the MOSERS perspective. The decision to hire an employee into a benefit-eligible position is at the sole discretion of the employer and should be made at the time of hire using the following guidance:

    • Employees who work in positions that normally require at least 1,040 hours a year are eligible for benefits. 
    • The number of hours required by a position should be based on the number of hours expected during the normal course of business over a one-year period by position, regardless of whether the position is intended to be temporary or permanent in nature.
    Benefit-eligible employees are entitled to service and salary credit towards the calculation of their future pension and maintain life and long-term disability insurance through MOSERS (if applicable). As a result, the employer will remit retirement contributions and insurance premiums for all benefit-eligible employees with each paycheck.

  • Reminder: Benefit-Eligible Positions

    Aug 16, 2021, 10:43 AM By MOSERS

    We get questions about benefit eligibility, especially related to the reemployment of retirees. See the Benefit Eligibility page on our website for information but remember, the decision about whether or not a position is benefit-eligible should be based on an analysis of the position, not based on who will fill the position.

  • Annual Benefit Statements

    Apr 15, 2021, 9:58 AM By MOSERS

    The 2021 Annual Benefit Statements for active members are now available online. Employees can access their statement by logging in to myMOSERS, clicking on Online Documents then on Document Express. If they have opted to receive their correspondence from MOSERS through the mail, we will mail their statement to their home address. It is also available as described above. Please encourage your employees to review their Annual Benefit Statements. They are a great tool for planning and assessing retirement readiness.
