The Official Website of the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union
There is now a single point of contact for first responder mental health resources in the State of Michigan!! Wayne State University is launching the Frontline strong together website and phone #. The website is fst5.org.You can go there and get peer support contacts from across the state for yourself or if you need a CISM/peer support team to come out after a traumatic run, get mental health professionals, contact info as well who work with first responders that can help you through a tough time.You also can either call +1 833-347-8766 or click on the link on the website and you will be connected 24/7 to a operator who is also a crisis counselor if you are in crisis or need help.These operators are not only for those in a crisis, they can connect you with peer support, cism/peer support, traumatic call out and mental health professionals. In addition, they have resources for financial help, child care, substance abuse, caretakers and much more. These resources are for the first responders and their families. Please go to the website and use these resources. Now every first responder in the state of Michigan can get help and resources 24/7!!!.Firefighters from the MPFFU helped to shape how this website and phone number worked and designed. If you use this and have any problems, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information About the Repeal of Pension Tax
PA 4 isn’t effective until mid-February. It goes into effect 90 days after the legislative session ended in November.
Treasury’s new withholding guidance will be available around the end of February,
It is likely that pension administrators will continue to withhold as they have been until PA 4 takes effect and then make changes after that.
However, retirees can direct their pension administrator anytime to adjust or eliminate withholding by submitting this form: 4924, Withholding Certificate for Michigan Pension or Annuity Payments MI W-4P.
