Income Stabilization Fund Program

Income Stabilization Fund

If you timely filed an application for the Income Stabilization Fund (“ISF”) program and were determined as an Eligible Pensioner by the Michigan Department of Treasury, your March 1, 2015 pension benefit may include restoration of all, or a portion of, the 4.5% Benefit Reduction and/or COLA reduction. Eligibility was based upon total household income equal to, or less than, 140% of the Federal Poverty Line in 2013.

The Treasury Department calculated the amount of benefit you will receive, if any, under the State Contribution Agreement, as an Income Stabilization Benefit amount or an Income Stabilization “Benefit Plus” amount. An Income Stabilization Supplemental benefit, not greater than your 4.5% Benefit Reduction, is paid however, only if your 2013 total household income (based upon household size) is below 130% of the 2013 Federal Poverty Level.

An Income Stabilization Benefit Plus is paid, or may be paid at some time in the future, if your 2013 household income indexed for inflation is less than 105% of the Federal Poverty Level in the applicable year. The Benefit Plus may restore the cumulative COLAs and 4.5% Benefit Reductions as a result of the City’s bankruptcy.
