Interested in a board seat with SERS, STRS, or OPERS retirement systems? The Ohio Education Association sponsors scholarships for members interested in pursuing these roles. They cover the cost the training sessions required to complete a Certificate of Achievement in Public Plan Policy (CAPPP), as well as other related trainings and/or meetings.
Additionally, at OEA’s urging, the Board adopted a change that at an 85% funding level or greater, the Board may consider changes in the plan that do not materially impair the fiscal integrity of the system. OEA supports this change and supports restoration of COLA benefits as well as a reduction in employee contribution rates as financial conditions improve.
