Healthcare Contribution 3% Refund from ORS

The Supreme Court ruled on December 20, 2017, 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, was unconstitutional and that member contributions (which were being held in escrow) shall be refunded to members.

ORS will return the contributions plus interest to employers and the employers will issue refunds of those contributions plus interest to employees who worked during the time PA 75 was in effect.

ORS will send an important email to you on or before January 22, 2018. This email will tell you about the amount you contributed, the amount of accrued interest, and the total amount of your refund for each of the school districts you worked in during that period. 

If you have questions about the refund, please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page for answers.

If you are a former employee who worked at Oakridge Public Schools any time between July 2010 and September 2012, please follow this link to complete a form updating your contact information (if you have a new address). Current Oakridge employees do not need to fill out this form. Updated contact information needs to be submitted by January 31, 2018
