OPERS closed on Thanksgiving, day after

As a reminder to our members and retirees, the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System will be closed on Thanksgiving Day and the day after Thanksgiving.

The OPERS offices are open on Wednesday, but our lobby and phone lines will close at 2:30 p.m. that day.

We’ll post our hours for Christmas and New Year’s Day as those holidays approach. With New Year’s Day falling on a Friday, the January 2016 benefit payment will be made on Jan. 4.

    Please direct this to where ever it should go.
    I completed my sign up with One Exchange the middle of October. I have never received my HRH Welcome Kit that probably has the instructions to ally my confusion. I have received the cards for my medical and my Rx, but I do not understand the HRH Reimbursement process.
    since I paid up front, I know I can be reimbursed this month for my premium. How do I do that? I know there are forms involved …. where are they? I have never had to fill out any kind of medical forms and I am totally ignorant of what is required and to whom I send the request.
    Please help me. Thank YOu.

      If you are asking us to cancel insurance that you selected, you can’t do that through the blog. You have to call us at 800-222-7377 or call OneExchange at 844-287-9945.
