Retirement Plan Providers

Lead Administrator and Default Provider

To help with the ongoing administration of the university’s retirement plans, including the Alternative Retirement Plan, 403(b) Plan, 457(b) Plan, Retirement Continuation Plan, and 415(m) Plan, Ohio State selected Fidelity to be the plans’ lead administrator. In this role, Fidelity will handle certain enrollment actions through its website, and Fidelity will help provide compliance coordination services across providers. Fidelity will also serve as the default provider for participants who do not make a provider election.

Ohio Deferred Compensation enrollments and payroll contribution elections may not be made through the Lead Administrator website and must be made directly with ODC at ohio457.org.
