Eligibility to Retire (OPSRP Pension Program)
You are vested in the OPSRP Pension Program on the earliest date in which you complete at least 600 hours of service in each of five calendar years (the years do not have to be consecutive). If you are an active member any time on or after reaching normal retirement age, you become a vested member regardless of years of service. Once you are vested in the OPSRP Pension Program, you cannot lose your benefit rights unless you withdraw from the program. 
 
An active member is defined as a member who is presently employed by a participating employer in an OPSRP Pension Program qualifying position and who has completed the six-month waiting period.
 
The age at which you can retire depends on your classification.
