Each quarter, the OPURP releases a newsletter to update and educate participants about any changes to the plans or eligibility, as well as provide tools and tips about how to optimize retirement savings for all age groups and salary levels.

Here are some things you can expect to find in our newsletter:

  • Information regarding plan changes, eligibility, and loans
  • Updates to investment options, such as new available accounts or funds
  • Advice from our Plan Providers on how to use their services and start saving for retirement
  • Tools and widgets to create a lifetime or annual savings goal and project where your retirement account could be in 10, 20, even 50 years
  • Information from the IRS about retirement savings and how participating in a salary deferral program can benefit you as early as next tax season
