Update on Retirement Legislation, Part IV

Colleagues,

Please see below for more important information on legislation to allow Optional Retirement Program (ORP) participants a onetime opportunity to switch to the MA State Employee Retirement System (MSERS). This legislation is referred to as Section 60 (again, this is NOT related to the ORP-SERS class action affecting 30 or so UMB lecturers).
