Employers & Partners

OCERS’ participating employers have an integral role in securing their employees’ retirement benefits. Participating employers provide OCERS the employee demographic and payroll data that allows OCERS to calculate retirement benefits and run the retirement system. The employers also transmit the retirement contributions that OCERS invests in order to pay out retirement benefits.
