​Retirement is a major milestone, and one of the most important decisions you will make in your lifetime. Retirement looks and feels different to everyone; however, OPERS has many resources available to help you understand planning and timelines. Our latest resource is the digital retirement application.

The new digital retirement application guides members to provide the correct and complete information. We designed the digital form with guardrails to reduce mistakes, saving members and our staff time. The digital retirement process increases efficiencies and the speed of communication.

If you are ready to retire, the digital retirement application is ready for you to complete. Watch the video on the Retirement Application webpage for an overview of the entire application and how to digitally sign your application through OneSpan.
