State Politics

Wednesday, October 7th, 2009

I received a letter from PERSI stating that because I substituted fulltime 20 hours a week and worked 5 or more months in a row that I should have paid into the fund to the amount of $616.00 and that I needed to make a lump sum payment or have it taken out of my pay check and fill out a RS166 form. My understanding is that the money we be given back to me once I am done subbing at the end of the school year.  The district has to match those funds. I still haven’t found out what happens to that money. My concern over this whole matter is why is PERSI doing this now? The statue they are refering to will not hold up in court. If anyone has any comments on this issue please free to make them.
