Advocating for a Retirement Enhancement Opportunity for Certain Members of the MTRS

Share This

Teachers have been through a lot over the past 18 months. Teaching for a full year during the pandemic required many years' worth of effort, and it's taken a toll on a number of teachers. Some teachers who are near the end of their career already, especially those at high risk for severe illness from COVID-19, are ready to retire to protect their own health.

This legislation is a fiscally responsible way to support teachers who want to retire this year while preserving the financial security of the state’s pension system and making way for a new generation of educators.
