page provides information to OCERS Members, Plan Sponsors,
interested parties, and their attorneys regarding the process
for appealing a disability retirement decision by the OCERS
Disability Committee or a non-disability benefit determination
decision by OCERS staff.
On June 1,
2018, the OCERS Board Policy “Adjudication Policy and
Administrative Hearing Rules (Disability and Non-Disability
Benefits)” became effective. This policy defines how the OCERS
Board of Retirement adjudicates decisions on both Disability and
Non-Disability benefit matters. This policy supersedes the
“OCERS Board Policy Administrative Hearing Procedures,” except
in matters where the Request for Administrative Hearing was
served prior to June 1, which continue to be governed under the
“old” Administrative Hearing Rules.
