    MPFFU Convention Podcast

    The 55th Biennial Convention of the Michigan Professional Fire Fighters Union is being held at the Park Place Hotel in Traverse City on April 30, May 1 and May 2, 2024.  The MPFFU Convention is held every two years. The delegates that attend provide the direction, goals and objectives for the MPFFU for the next two years.  In addition, they elect the members of the MPFFU Executive Board, select the site of the 2026 Convention, and hear presentations from subject-matter experts on a variety of topics, including the most up-to-date legal issues and legislative issues affecting our members.  They will also be provided with important information from IAFF officers. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network with your brothers and sisters from locals all across the State.  All locals are encouraged to send representatives to this Convention.

    Listed below is the information you need to register those attending the convention and to make your hotel reservations. Please register soon to assist us with the planning of this event. We've tried to make it as simple as possible for you to register.

    The number of delegates each local is entitled to is based on the local's average monthly membership during the year of 2023.  You can find the authorized number of delegates for your local by clicking here.

    Information About the Repeal of Pension Tax

    A special provision was implemented for certain fire, police, and corrections retirees. Beginning tax years on or after January 1, 2023 retirees may fully deduct, to the extent a qualifying distribution is included in AGI, retirement benefits received from Michigan service as a:public police or fire department employee, subject to compulsory arbitration of labor disputes under 1969 PA 312, (see especially MCL 423.232(1)(d) and (2)),

    There is no limitation to the amount of a public benefits deductible for these retirees. Private benefits may be deducted up to the private pension limits (see Option 1, Tier 1 for amounts), but any public retirement deduction claimed reduces the maximum private retirement deduction. If a surviving spouse filed a joint return in the year of death with a person who was a qualified fire, police, or corrections retiree and the couple claimed a retirement subtraction that year, that surviving spouse continues to be eligible for this subtraction.  Consult your tax advisor for more information.

     Retirees can direct their pension administrator to adjust or eliminate withholding from your pension check by submitting this form:  4924, Withholding Certificate for Michigan Pension or Annuity Payments MI W-4P
