Retirement Information and    Forms:

  • OPERS Electronic Student Exemption Process  The Payroll Office will submit a newly hired student’s name, SSN, phone number, email address, home address and employment begin date to OPERS.  If submitted within 30 days of their employment start date, OPERS will send an email and text message (if cell phone number is available) that includes a customized web page link to the student.  If the student elects to opt-out of OPERS, the employer and the student will receive an email confirmation for their records.  The student will receive a reminder email and text on the 27th day if there is no action taken.  If the student does not exempt, the status will remain pending until the 30-day window is closed and will then update to non-exempt.  It is vital that when hiring student employees, supervisors submit a Student Employment New Hire form to Career Services/Student Employment in a prompt and timely manner.  Students have 30 days from their employment start date to opt-out of OPERS membership.  If a student does not opt-out within 30 days, they will automatically be enrolled in OPERS and will NOT have the option of requesting exemption until there is a break in employment of at least 365 days.  This process also includes graduate level student assistants and graduate assistants.  Before a student opts-out of OPERS, they should consider that the service credit earned while in college counts towards retirement if they become employed in the public sector during their career.  Information regarding the benefits of OPERS membership can be found at or by calling 1-800-222-7377 to speak with a member services representative.
