Regional sessions will address pension, health care issues
By Marc Tubbs, Ohio Public Employees Retirement System
Sept. 5, 2019 – The OPERS Education team is rolling out new, regional seminars to update members and retirees on the latest news regarding pensions and health care.
The sessions will include information on open enrollment for 2020, the status of pension and health care funding and proposed health care changes being considered by the OPERS Board of Trustees. The presenters will be a combination of OPERS executives and members of the Education team.
OPERS will conduct these education events regionally around Ohio through the end of 2019. The typical format will be a 10 a.m. session for both pre-Medicare and Medicare retirees, a 2 p.m. session for the same group, and a 6 p.m. session for active members who are within five years of retirement eligibility.
You can receive location-specific information and register for the seminars through your online account or by calling us at 800-222-7377.
We’ll also be conducting webinars for retirees and active members on the same topics.
The new seminars kick off this week with sessions in Independence. Here’s the remainder of the seminar and webinar schedules:
