Important Changes: School Plan Services Rendered After Termination

With the recent passage of LB 147 in the Unicameral there are significant changes to what voluntary and/or substitute service can be provided by a School plan member during the 180-day period after termination from employment. With the knowledge that our School plan members will have questions regarding what is now acceptable, please reference our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) about LB 147's Changes to the Termination of Employment Rules. After reviewing the FAQ document, if questions still remain regarding how this will affect the voluntary and/or substitute service to provide after termination without violating reemployment rules, our Member Services area is available at (402)471-2053 or (800)245-5712, option #1.
