The Traditional Pension Plan
A member’s group is determined by age and years of service as of December 31, 2012 (assuming continuous employment). The groups are known as Group A, B, and C.
OPERS education is targeted to assist members based on which group they are in. Follow these steps to find the education created for your group:
Step 1: Identify your group
Refer to your annual statement, available from your online account, to determine which of the three groups you belong to:
- Group A (Ready to Retire) - Eligible to retire on or before Jan. 7, 2018

- Group C (Active members) - Eligible to retire under current eligibility requirements after Jan. 7, 2023 or members hired on or after Jan. 7, 2013
