Benefit Changes
Changing Payment Plan & Beneficiary Designation

A monthly retirement benefit payable for your lifetime by OPERS may be modified based on the following life-changing events: marriage or remarriage; divorce, dissolution or annulment of marriage; and/or death of a beneficiary(ies).

If you elected to receive a Partial Lump Sum Option Payment (PLOP) at retirement, the PLOP will be accounted for upon the modification and recalculation of your monthly retirement benefit.
