Student Employees: Retirement Exemption Process Changed

Student retirement exemption forms must be submitted to OHR within 30 days before or after the hire date. Forms received after this deadline will not be accepted and the student will irrevocably pay into retirement unless there is a 12-month break. If an exemption is valid, but the form is not received by the payroll cutoff date (and a deduction is taken), a refund will automatically be given after the exemption request has been approved by OPERS. Students should allow approximately 60 days for the refund. Review the OPERS Exemption Submission Calendar to determine when a correctly completed form must be in our office in order to meet the payroll deadline so no retirement deductions are withheld..
