New law changes default retirement plan for new members
November 30, 2023
On Nov. 30, Public Act 250 of 2023 was signed by the governor and became law. This law changes the retirement plan that new members default into when they have not elected a plan by the end of their 75-day election window. Beginning July 1, 2024, when a new hire’s election window closes, they will automatically become a member of Pension Plus 2. All new hires will continue to have a choice between the two plans, but as of July 1, 2024, those who have not made an election will become members of Pension Plus 2 (the plan you have been reporting them as since their first pay period).
Further work on ORS’s implementation plan is underway, and we will keep you informed of changes to member communications as they become available.
