During the 31-day enrollment period, you may elect coverage in one of the several medical plans available, dental and vision coverage, dependent and health care flexible spending accounts, short-term disability, dependent group term life insurance, and voluntary group term life insurance coverage.

The Office of Human Resources offers monthly health benefit forums to help you make these decisions. During these sessions key features of the benefit plans will be compared and address issues you need to consider when making your decision will be addressed.

RETIREMENT PROGRAM FORUMS
You have 120 days from the effective date of your eligible appointment to choose a retirement program. During the 120-day enrollment period, you may elect to participate in the Ohio Alternative Retirement Plan (ARP), Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS) for staff, or State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio (STRS) for faculty.

The Office of Human Resources offers monthly retirement forums. During these sessions key features of the ARP and OPERS/STRS will be compared and issues you need to consider when making your decision will be addressed. The presenters are NOT financial advisors and are not able to offer advice on what plan you should choose.

Staff who are unable to attend one of these sessions may use the free OPERS webinar to learn about the three retirement plans it offers. You may sign up and participate in a session at a computer and type in or ask questions via the phone. To register go to opers.org/seminars/web/m-howto.shtml.

Please plan to attend one of these important sessions to learn more about your retirement plan choices. If you are unable to attend one of these sessions during your 120-day enrollment period or you have additional questions, contact the Office of Human Resources Customer Service Center at service@hr.osu.edu, 614-292-1050 or 800-678-6010.
