The University of Cincinnati supports the efforts of faculty and staff in planning a fulfilling, financially secure retirement. The university offers a wide array of retirement options to help you meet your financial goals.
Retirement program eligibility is based upon your appointment type (faculty, staff or student) and your full time equivalency (FTE). The two state-mandated retirement programs are the State Teachers Retirement System (STRS) and the Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS). The Alternative Retirement Plan (ARP) is available to eligible employees in lieu of OPERS or STRS.
