Update on Ohio public pension reform, June 2012

Miami has created charts (see below) to highlight the proposed changes to the pension plans; STRS, OPERS and OPERS-LE for law enforcement. The charts can be found below. This is Miami's best effort to provide information on the current proposals in an understandable format. The charts are summaries and do not contain many of the details in the bills passed by the Ohio Senate. These charts should not be relied upon in making retirement decisions.

The University will share additional information as it becomes available but employees are encouraged to read communications from and direct questions to OPERS and STRS as official sources for the latest information regarding pension legislation. Both groups have special coverage sections with the latest legislative updates, presentations and benefit calculators.
