Dear Coordinator,

We are writing to inform you the Participation Election Form for Elected or Appointed Officials has been updated and is now available to download from the Employer Forms page of the OPERS website.

The new version of the form is a result of legislation in 2011 that changed participation in OPERS for newly elected or appointed officials after November 1, 2011. Newly elected or appointed officials must make an election to participate in OPERS within 90 days of taking office or default to participate at the highest applicable member contribution rate.

As stated on the form, members with previous participation in OPERS as an elected official before November 1, 2011, preserve the right to choose their level of participation, provided they did not withdraw their contributions from this prior period of participation. Elected officials who did withdraw contributions from prior elected service should contact OPERS.

As always, thank you for your continued support and partnership in serving your employees – our members.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
Your Friends at OPERS
