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

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.
