All Miami County employees, except for certain students, are automatically enrolled in the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS), as required by law. OPERS provides retirement, disability, and other benefits and is entirely independent of the federal Social Security System. This means you will pay into OPERS instead of Social Security while you work for Miami County. 

Your contributions are deducted from your biweekly paychecks. Contribution amounts are calculated on your earnable salary. 

Employee Contribution Rates

  • General: 10%
  • Public Safety Officers: 10.10%
  • Law Enforcement Officers: 13%

Employer Contribution Rates

  • General: 14%
  • Public Safety Officers: 18.10%
  • Law Enforcement Officers: 18.10%

While you will find many resources online to help you through your experience with OPERS, we have chosen to list a few of the most common documents below for your convenience.
