Annual statements available online

Start your checkup on the road to retirement security

By Michael Pramik, Ohio Public Employees Retirement System

March 22, 2018 – The OPERS annual statement is part of your yearly financial checkup, a chance to see the impact that an OPERS pension will have on your retirement security.

While we’ll mail the statements to members beginning in late March and throughout April, you can view your 2018 statement now through your online account. After signing in to your account, click “View My Annual Statement Now” under the Milestone Notifications/Alerts heading on the home page.

The annual statement is a snapshot of your estimated benefit. You also can view the percentage of your estimated final average salary you will receive if you choose to retire with a reduced or unreduced benefit, or if you continue working a few years longer. Also available is an interactive online tool providing term definitions, an explanation of the estimates provided and links to more information.

The annual statement is full of valuable, personalized information. We recommend keeping it with your important financial records so you can refer to it as needed.

More information about your annual statement can be found at OPERS’ Got Mail? Get Answers.

      Yes, Dale, you will receive your annual statement in the mail unless you’ve specifically requested that you do not want a copy mailed to you.

      Debra,

      OPERS began mailing the Annual Statements in late March and will continue mailing statements through April. Don’t be concerned if a family member or coworker receives his or her statement before yours arrives. OPERS groups the statements by ZIP code and mails them to home addresses on a staggered schedule.

      If you want to see your statement now, log into your online account and select the Documents tab. Please call us at 1-800-222-7377 if you run into any problems.

    I need to get a record of my benefits that were paid to me in 2012. I just applied for social security, and I need a copy. Thanks.
