Members of the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System receive important items in the mail from us. We’ve recently introduced a page to our website that explains the reasons for some of this correspondence.
The “Got mail? Get answers” section of the OPERS website is an overview of our most common benefit-related mailings. It lets you know what you received, why you received it and what you need to do about it, if action is required.
For instance, in May we sent out information about national change of address letters that we mailed to some of our members. These letters tell members that we have received a notice from the U.S. Postal Service that the member’s address has changed. It reminds them that if they are at a new address to log into their OPERS account and update their contact info.
Also in May we mailed annual statement postcards to inactive members. These are members who have accounts with us but who no longer are working in OPERS-covered positions. The postcards inform these members of their retirement and refund options.
The items on “Got mail? Get answers” have helpful videos that explain the correspondence. We encourage all of our members to bookmark this page and check it out if they have questions about a mailing that they received.
