OPERS' Board Recommends Benefit Plan Changes

The Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS) is the largest pension system in Ohio. More than 184,000 retirees and 349,000 active public workers look to OPERS for a secure retirement, now and in the future.

In November 2009, the Board recommended to the legislature a series of changes to benefits designed to strengthen the pension system and with the added goal of maintaining adequate funding for health care. Depending on legislative implementation, the recommended changes to benefits will build on past actions by the Board to prepare for longer life expectancies of retirees, to encourage member engagement in their retirement planning and to correct inequities resulting from benefit subsidization.
