OPERS Board of Trustees approves COLA changes

Sunday,  December  31,  2017

The recommendations, which require legislative approval by the Ohio General Assembly to
implement, include:
1. Tying the COLA to the CPI: Beginning in 2019, all future COLAs will be based on the U.S.
Consumer Price Index, capped at 2.25 percent. That means the maximum COLA to be
granted will be 2.25 percent, even if inflation during the measurement period exceeds that
2. Delaying implementation for some retirees: The new COLA formula will be delayed two
years for OPERS members who retired from 2010 through 2012. This provision was
included based upon feedback from our recent survey of OPERS retirees.
3. Delaying initial COLAs for future retirees: The first COLA will be delayed for future retirees
until their second pension anniversary.
4. Restoring purchasing power: OPERS will provide a one-time pension adjustment to restore
85 percent purchasing power for those retirees whose purchasing power is less than 85
5. Including funding triggers: Should OPERS’ required time to pay off unfunded liabilities top
30 years, the COLA will be frozen for the next calendar year. In the event inflation exceeds
3 percent for an extended period of time, the Board could increase the COLA to 3 percent
if OPERS funding is strong.

OP&F Board approves new health care model for 201

Tuesday,  January  1,  2019

OP&F Board approves new health care model for 2019 implementation
The Ohio Police & Fire Pension Fund (OP&F) has announced plans for a new retiree health care model that is expected to extend funding for health care for up to 15 years.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2019, OP&F will no longer sponsor a self-funded health care plan for retirees and will offer a fixed stipend to eligible members to be used for medical and health care needs. The OP&F Board of Trustees approved the decision unanimously at its March 29 meeting.

"While beginning in 2019 we will no longer sponsor a self-funded health care program, we are still committed to assisting members find an appropriate health care plan, and assisting financially also," said OP&F executive director John Gallagher.

No details of the new health care strategy were approved, but OP&F staff and consultants will be working to provide the Board with options in the coming months. The stipend amount is also to be determined. OP&F has committed to assisting retired members with finding an appropriate health care plan for both Medicare-eligible and non-Medicare populations.

OP&F has sponsored a self-funded retiree health care plan since 1974. Significant changes were first needed in 2003 to preserve the health care fund and several adjustments since then have preserved the plan, which has become more expensive for both retirees and the retirement system. In 2016, OP&F's total health care costs were $223 million.

Both actuarial and health care consultants delivered presentations to the Board that showed that without significant changes that funding for health care would be exhausted in approximately seven to nine years.

"Even with these significant changes, current trends in health care and prescription drug costs, health care support beyond a 15-year projection may not be possible without a new income stream," said Gallagher. "The OP&F Board, staff and our outside partners are all dedicated to searching for that funding source to assist future generations of retirees with their health care needs."
