9.C. Approval of Termination Benefit
The District recommends offering a one-time termination benefit for employees between the age of 50 on or after June 13, 2022, and the age of 55 on or before August 22. The window to decide whether to exercise the termination benefit is from March 22 through April 15, 2022 at 4:00 PM.
  • For employees with 25 continuous years of service desiring to terminate employment, each would receive 100% of their accrued health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) benefit in the form of a 403(b) contribution, 
  • For employees with 20 continuous years of service desiring to terminate employment, each would receive 75% of their accrued health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) benefit in the form of a 403(b) contribution,
  • For employees with 15 continuous years of service desiring to terminate employment, each would receive 50% of their accrued health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) benefit in the form of a 403(b) contribution.
The benefit will be paid in six equal payments on January 1, starting with January 1, 2023. The employer will contribute directly to the employee's 403(b) account. IRS rules govern when the employee may implement the benefit without penalty (currently age 55).

The 403(b) plan allows for qualified distributions at age 55 as long as the employee has separated from the District. That means an employee can't get distribution and come back consistently to sub or work in any other capacity for the District. However, a teacher could suspend their 403(b) payments while serving as a substitute and then restart their payments after employment.
