16 Service Credit 1 day = 5 or more hours 1 year = 170 days or more NOTE: Service credit for Minneapolis School District teachers and MnSCU faculty is reported as a percentage of a full-time contract salary. Part-time time service is prorated Service Credit Calculation Change (2010 Legislation): For teaching service performed after June 30, 2012, service credit will be calculated using a teacher s salary relative to an annual base salary based at the lowest BA level, full-time teacher base contract salary in each district. Salary will be tied to the pay period begin and end dates for when it is earned.

17 Service Credit (continued) How is service credit currently calculated if I teach half days? Hours per day x # of days = days of service credit 5 Hours worked NOTE: Service credit for Minneapolis School District teachers and MnSCU faculty is reported as a percentage of a fulltime contract salary. Example: Work 4 hours/day for 180 days 4 / 5 x 180 =144 days of service credit 144 days / 170 days = 0.85 year of service credit [5 or more hours/day = 1 full day of service credit] [170 or more days/year = 1 full year of service credit]

40 Sample Estimate Estimates provided are for planning purposes. Upon retirement, TRA will make actual calculations based on a final audit of your Teachers Retirement Association records and not on the basis of this statement. Periodically, by law, the TRA benefit structure may change, which may effect your final monthly benefit.

41 Pension Maximization Insurance agents or financial planners may recommend choosing the TRA No Refund plan and purchasing a separate life insurance policy instead of choosing a TRA survivorship plan. This is referred to as pension maximization. Very few circumstances when you would be better off choosing this option: cost of insurance policy purchased at the time of retirement could be high may be difficult to pass the medical examination insurance proceeds are tied to investment t returns; annuity paid to survivor may not provide expected income TRA survivorship plans provide your survivor with security by providing lifetime payments.

42 Post-Retirement Increases 2010 Legislation A temporary two-year suspension of annual post- retirement increases for calendar years 2011 and Current law provides that beginning January 1, 2013, annual post-retirement increases will be 2.0 percent. Also, current law provides that once market value funding ratio reaches 90 percent, increase will be restored to 2.5 percent.

43 Additional 2010 Legislation Members and employers: Contribution rates will each rise by 0.5 percent annually until July 1, At that t time, the member and employer rate will each be 7.5 percent (6.0 percent as of July 1, 2011). Inactive members: As of July 1, 2011, the refund interest rate is 4 percent. Deferred interest will be 2 percent beginning July 1, (Previous interest rates varied depending on date of initial employment.) The executive directors of the three statewide retirement systems (MSRS, PERA and TRA) were directed to jointly conduct a study of defined benefit, defined contribution and other alternative retirement plans for Minnesota public employees. Study was submitted to the Legislature by June 1, 2011 and can be found on the TRA web site.
