HR Question of the Week

HR Question of the week

Where can I go to Learn More About the Proposed Changes to the State Pension Systems?

Representatives from the Ohio Public Employee Retirement System (OPERS) and the State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio (STRS) will be on the Kent Campus on Tuesday, May 3, for informational meetings on the proposed changes to both state retirement systems.

The OPERS session will be held at 10 a.m. in the Kent Student Center Kiva, and the STRS session will begin at 1 p.m. in the same location. Each session will last approximately 75 minutes and will include a question and answer period. The session will also be streamed live on the web and recorded for future viewing online. The links for both will be available on the Faculty/Staff page of the Kent State website at Look for the links, beginning on May 3, in the Current Highlights section on that page.

Reservations are required to attend either of the in-person informational sessions. You can register at OPERS May 3, 2011, Session or STRS May 3, 2011, Session. Please note that staff employees who attend the seminar must take the appropriate leave time, which includes vacation or comp time.

Updates on the proposed legislation for both state retirement systems may be found on the OPERS and STRS websites.
