OPERS is a unified team of trusting professionals, where outcomes are driven by collaboration, innovation and integrity, and successes are celebrated…all in service to our members.
Since 1935, the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS) has meant security and peace of mind to millions of Ohio’s retired public workers and their families. OPERS provides retirement, disability and survivor benefit programs for public employees throughout the state who are not covered by another state or local retirement system.
With unaudited defined benefit and health care investment assets of $101.4 billion as of Dec. 31, 2017, OPERS is the largest state pension fund in Ohio, and the 12th-largest public retirement system and 15th-largest retirement system in the U.S.
Located in the heart of downtown Columbus -- Ohio's capital city – OPERS is blocks away from the Ohio Statehouse and Capital Square.
OPERS serves more than 1 million past and present Ohio workers. This includes active (working) members, benefit recipients and former public workers who maintain an account with the system.
