Contribution Rates

Employer contribution rates at OP&F are 19.5 percent of reportable payrolls for employers of police officers and 24 percent for employers of firefighters. This is in addition to the member's contribution, which is a percentage of the gross pensionable salary for full-time police officers and firefighters.

Changes to contribution rates

In September 2012, The Ohio General Assembly passed a new law which gradually increased the member contribution rates for active OP&F police officers and firefighters. The active member contribution rate increased from 10 percent to 12.25 percent in increments of 0.75 percent per year from 2013-2015. The contribution rate of 12.25 percent remains the current rate.

The law did not change the employer contribution rates.
