Payments usually made on the first business day of each month
By Michael Pramik, Ohio Public Employees Retirement System
Dec. 30, 2021 – If you’re an OPERS retiree, you receive a pension each month. Here’s when our retirees can expect to receive their pensions next year.
OPERS typically issues pension benefit payments on the first business day of the month. If that day falls on a weekend or holiday, we’ll issue the payment on the last business day of the previous month. The exception to this rule is in January when, for tax purposes, the payment must be issued on the first business day of the month.
Please make note of the payment dates for 2022 in the list below. You also can find this schedule posted on the OPERS website.
|January||Jan. 3 (Monday)|
|February||Feb. 1 (Tuesday)|
|March||March 1 (Tuesday)|
|April||April 1 (Friday)|
|May||April 29 (Friday)|
|June||June 1 (Wednesday)|
|July||July 1 (Friday)|
|August||Aug. 1 (Monday)|
|September||Sept. 1 (Thursday)|
|October||Sept. 30 (Friday)|
|November||Nov. 1 (Tuesday)|
|December||Dec. 1 (Thursday)|
