MSRS Deferred Comp Update

MSRS Customer Service Changes During COVID-19 Social Distancing

As the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues, MSRS remains open for business. Our priority is maintaining the health and safety of our participants and employees while still providing retirement benefits and services. 

Visit the MSRS website for the most up-to-date information on how we are currently conducting business. 

Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) Changes

The SECURE Act of 2019 changed the age retirement plan participants must begin taking RMDs from age 70½ to age 72. 

The CARES Act, signed into law this past March waives RMDs for calendar year 2020. Learn more about how the CARES Act impacts RMDs. 

Updated MNDCP In-Service Withdrawal Provision

The Further Consolidated Appropriations Act (FCAA) was signed into law in December 2019. The FCAA allows in-service withdrawals under governmental 457(b) plans at age 59½ (rather than age 70½ previously permitted for 457(b) plans).  

MNDCP adopted this optional provision effective June 12. MNDCP participants currently employed by a Minnesota public employer may now request a withdrawal for any reason after obtaining age 59½. An employee who takes an in-service withdrawal may continue to contribute to their MNDCP account. 

Schedule a Phone Meeting with MSRS

Over the past month, MSRS representatives have been busy communicating with participants over the phone who are concerned about stock market volatility, impacts on their retirement accounts and answering questions regarding MNDCP or HCSP accounts.

Now may be a good time to have your MSRS representative meet with your employees via phone appointments. Simply schedule some dates and your MSRS representative can send you a website link and/or flyer for your employees to sign-up online. 

Appointment scheduling made easy!
