Working for the State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio (STRS Ohio) for seven years provided an unparalleled understanding of the Ohio pension system and its intricacies. Our STRS Ohio clients can retire confidently, knowing that we have identified the optimal retirement age, plan of payment selection, and potential amount from the Partial Lump Sum Option Payment (PLOP). To ensure that retirement planning is as simple and efficient as possible, we use a proprietary system that helps calculate the appropriate PLOP amount, if applicable.
In addition to selecting and applying for STRS retirement benefits and healthcare plans, we can also provide an accurate estimate of Social Security income, as well as advise on the impact of the Windfall Elimination Provision (WEP) and the Government Pension Offset (GPO). Our extensive knowledge and experience in the Ohio pension system allows us to provide comprehensive and reliable retirement advice that our clients can trust.

Retirement planning is a critical task for anyone, regardless of their age or financial standing. Having the right professionals by your side to guide and advise you through the retirement journey is essential. Working with a firm that is in some way connected with your pension system — such as a former employee or member — is a great advantage.
At our firm, we understand the importance of the Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP) as well as your survivor and disability benefits. It is essential to plan ahead and carefully select the best option for when to retire and which payment plan is best for you and your family. We will work with you to go over your options and make sure that you are taking full advantage of the retirement opportunities available to you.
