Disability Benefits

Disability benefits may be available for those members who are disabled from their last position of public employment.

OPERS offers Traditional Pension Plan members, who are eligible, one of two disability programs -- the Original Plan or the Revised Plan. Employees who had contributions on deposit with OPERS on July 29, 1992 had a one-time opportunity to select coverage under one of these programs. Those employees hired after July 29, 1992 are covered only under the Revised plan.

The following links to the Disability Benefits leaflet provide valuable information regarding disability benefits.
