Dozens of retired teachers sue Muncie Community Schools over insurance benefits


MUNCIE, Ind. – Dozen of retired teachers are suing Muncie Community Schools because of issues with their insurance. The former teachers say the school district went back on its word and left them without coverage.

According to the lawsuit, many high-paid Muncie teachers were encouraged to retire early to save the district money. Muncie Community Schools offered these early retirees the same insurance benefits as active teachers as an incentive.  The insurance coverage for early retirees is listed in the teachers’ contract.

But, the school board voted to do away with the incentive at a November 15 meeting.
