I understand that I am not currently a member of the Teachers' / Employees' Retirement System. I understand that I have a right to join the Teacher' / Employees' Retirement System.I understand that part time employment (i.e. less than a full day, every day school is in session for the Teachers' Retirement System or anything less than full time, 12 month employment for the Employees' Retirement System) does not require that I join the Retirement System.
NOTE: Any employee who is eligible to join the Teachers' Retirement System and is hired during the school year full-time through June 30, or the last day school is in session, must join the Teachers' Retirement System. (Section 503- 1 Education Law)
