WSGW OnLine and App Poll: Is it Time to Change Teacher Retirement Plans in Michigan?

Teachers and their retirement plans are being discussed in Lansing.

Right now, teachers can choose a “hybrid plan” which combines a traditional pension along with a tax deferred investment account, or teachers can choose a 401K type plan.

Republicans say any type of pension plans are unaffordable and all future teachers should be in a 401K type plan.   Democrats say any changes will be costly and closing a pension system would make the profession less attractive for new teachers.

POLL QUESTION:   What retirement plan should future Michigan teachers be offered?
–  Keep the current choice of a combination traditional pension along with a tax deferred investment, or a 401K type plan
–  Offer only a 401K type plan
–  Not Sure
