LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Certain retired teachers can return to work in critical shortage subjects without sacrificing their pension and health care benefits under a law signed by Gov. Rick Snyder.

The law enacted Wednesday is designed to address shortages of full-time teachers in some subjects and substitute teachers.

A law allowing educators who retired after mid-2010 to teach again without losing their retirement benefits expired last year. The law re-enacts provisions until 2018.

Retirees hired in shortage subjects can work three years without risking their benefits. Retirees working as substitutes can receive full benefits as long as they make no more than one-third of their final average compensation in a year.

The new law directs the state superintendent to publish a list of critical shortage disciplines and post the information on the Internet.
