MERS Legal

The MERS in-house Legal Department provides legal support to the Retirement System and the Board. The Legal Department does not provide legal advice to members or benefit recipients.

The legal staff actively monitors state and federal laws, ensuring that the MERS plans are in compliance with applicable federal and state law. In addition, MERS actively maintains its qualified status as a 401(a) plan with the Internal Revenue Service. MERS is required to follow Michigan state law and prudent standards of diligence, and we're dedicated to maintaining strict oversight and management to meet those requirements.
