OPERS ERIP Deadline is 4/30/12

March 30, 2012

Dear Ohio University colleague,

I would like to remind you about an important deadline regarding the Ohio Public Employees Retirement (OPERS) early retirement incentive plan (ERIP). The last day for enrolling in the plan is Monday, April 30, 2012. The ERIP will not be extended.

Eligible employees that intend to participate in this plan MUST sign both the OPERS Employee and Employer Agreement (form F-111c) and the Retirement Incentive Agreement for Staff Members and return to Ohio University's Human Resources department on or before Monday, April 30, 2012. Participating employees must be eligible to retire by April 30, 2012 and may choose to work through June 30, 2012 at the latest; however, the agreement must be signed and submitted to the Human Resource office on or before April 30, 2012.

If you are interested in learning more, please visit the following UHR Web site:


(Some links require that an OHIO ID and password be entered to access the documents).

PLEASE NOTE: This notice is being sent to all employees who contribute to OPERS, including students. A separate notice will be sent to STRS contributing employees, as their plan has different timelines.

You may also contact University Human Resources at 740-593-1636 if you have additional questions.
