    Hopefully she will understand that OPERS will continue to try to cut reiree benefits in some way shape or form Whether this is through another attempt to get politicians to ‘freeze’ COLAS or by again cutting Health Care benefits.
    Given inflation and other economic factors of which she should be aware, most retirees would not be able to survive more cuts.
    Please don’t assume OPERS weill not try again.

      Lee,
      I can assure you that I am keeping up to date with all pending and future legislation, along with Greg Bennett who is our legislative representative with Byers Minton and Associates. We have personally been individually meeting with members of the Ohio Retirement Council, OPERS retiree board members and local representatives to lobby for the COLA freeze vote. This vote was put in place in 2019 and it should be brought in front of legislation by January of 2023 and not just assumed to continue. I, and PERI will continue to keep you informed as we get any feedback and information that pertains to your pension and benefits. Thank you
