Supreme Court Rules on PA 75 and 3% Healthcare Contributions

The Supreme Court has ruled that PA 75 of 2010, which was in effect from July 2010 until September 2012 and mandated that members contribute 3% of their compensation to the Retiree Healthcare Fund, is unconstitutional and that member contributions (which are currently being held in escrow) shall be refunded to members. ORS is working to implement the Supreme Court’s decision and return contributions to the school districts where the contributions were withheld. These refunds will be issued to members through the school districts. Additional information will be provided to members and school districts regarding the timing and amounts of forthcoming refunds as soon as it becomes available.

ORS has setup a FAQ page which you may find here, PA 75 and 3% Healthcare Contributions FAQs.
