Employer Notices

Employer notices are used to inform and update OPERS reporting employers on contribution rate certifications, news, rule revisions and policy changes. They are mailed to employers and posted on the OPERS Web site as important information becomes available.

Each notice is provided in a PDF format PDF, which most Web browsers are able to automatically view. Please consult the publications help page if you have trouble viewing a notice.

Other employer publications, including Employer Outreach Newsletters and Employer Facts At-A-Glance, are available to be viewed and printed at the Employers publication library in the Publications section.
