In an effort to be flexible in this regard, some information may be discussed over the telephone with members. Those members must verify their identity by providing accurate confidential information when asked. The caller must provide information that is consistent with the member’s information in our computer records to verify his or her identity. OPERS staff members may decline to provide information in any instance where they feel there is a confidentiality risk, or if the caller does not sufficiently verify his or her identity.
