OPERS has two forms to provide tax withholding preferences for federal and state taxes. The forms on this page should only be used by members retiring on or after December 1, 2022. Current retired members should continue to use the withholding preference certificates located on the forms page.

If you do not file IRS Form W-4P, OPERS is required by law to withhold federal tax as if your filing status is single with no adjustments in Steps 2 through 4.

If you do not file a Oklahoma state withholding preference, OPERS is required by law to assume you are married and claiming three allowances for state taxes.
