Monthly Board Report

Limited in-person retirement meetings available again

While virtual retirement interviews are here to stay, OP&F has started hosting in-person appointments at its headquarters at 140 E. Town Street in Columbus. Throughout the pandemic, OP&F members approaching retirement have been able to have retirement interviews, first over the phone, and then also virtually via video conferencing tools. OP&F Customer Service will continue to offer these options, but have been scheduling limited in-person interviews as well. A release is required and COVID safe protocols are in place. Members scheduled for appointments will be contacted for their preference.

May Board of Trustee meeting open to the public under Covid Safe protocols

Since March of 2020, meetings of the OP&F Board of Trustees have been available to the public by teleconference only. That will change in May as OP&F will allow limited public attendance to the meeting. Appropriate social distancing and other precautions will be in place for the May 25 and 26 committee and trustee meetings. Sign-ups will be available on the OP&F website in mid-May.

A Personal Note from OP&F Interim Executive Director, Mary Beth Foley: Thank you to the OP&F Board, Directors, staff and friends of OP&F for the tremendous outpouring of support and love in our family’s loss of our son, John. Your kindness is truly appreciated.
