You Have a Choice

As a newly hired full-time employee of a college or university, you must choose a retirement plan. You must choose between the statewide administered plan established under the Ohio Revised Code, the School Employees Retirement System of Ohio (SERS), or your college- or university-sponsored Alternative Retirement Plan (ARP).

Before you make your choice, it is important that you review all the material for both types of plans, especially the employee and employer contribution structure, your benefits, and the risks in relation to your specific retirement goals.

Once you chose either SERS or the ARP, your selection is irrevocable as long as you are continuously employed.
