  • STRS Ohio Watchdogs

Ohio's teachers must continue to be represented by Board members who are elected by them and will advocate for them

The recently formed ORSC STRS Subcommittee will meet on Monday, July 8th.


You will be able to watch the committee meeting on the Ohio Channel at 1:00 PM ET on Monday, July 8: https://www.ohiochannel.org/live/ohio-retirement-study-council.  



If you trust the ORSC STRS Subcommittee to protect your retirement benefits, do nothing.


If you don't trust the ORSC STRS Subcommittee to protect your retirement benefits, contact the committee members before the meeting. Contact information is posted below.


Talking Points:


  • Intergenerational equity: Teachers pay the contribution that is determined by STRS based on the calculations of the STRS staff and consultants. It's not the fault of teachers if those calculations are wrong, yet teachers are paying the price for those miscalculations.

  • Employer contribution: The employer contribution has remained the same for 40 years, while the employee contribution has increased to 14%. Only our legislators can increase the employer contribution to provide the funding needed by STRS to restore benefits.

  • STRS Ohio Board: Ohio's teachers must continue to be represented by Board members who are elected by them and will advocate for them.

  • Active teachers: How is the increase in employee contribution and years of service impacting your life?

  • Retired teachers: How is the suspension of the COLA impacting your life?


Sen. Romanchuk created the ORSC STRS Subcommittee at the close of this meeting.
