➜ Who we are:
We are PERI, an advocacy group that works to represent your interests to OPERS and the state government.
➜ Who we ARE NOT:
We are not Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS). We do not manage your benefits, answer questions about your medical coverage, or issue your pension checks. To contact Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS), call (800) 222-7377 ☎.
➜ Why Join?
Critical mass. The more members we have, the louder our collective voice when we speak on your behalf. The size of our membership has more than once motivated elected officials to support our position.
We monitor every piece of legislation that is introduced that could adversely affect our members. Once PERI has established a position on an important issue, we lobby the appropriate agency or board and if necessary the Ohio General Assembly.
To protect and preserve OPERS pension and benefits programs and advocate for changes that are in the best interest of PERI members, while providing value through communications and education of the membership through our districts, local chapters and external partnerships.
