  • We will be closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
  • We will reopen after Christmas at 8 a.m. on Dec. 26.
  • On Dec. 31, our offices will be open from 8 a.m.-noon. We will reopen at 8 a.m. on Jan. 2.

You can use your online account, accessible from the OPERS website, to review information 24 hours a day. Your online account contains current data on account and service credit values, beneficiary designations and many other valuable items.
