Welcome to the new ProActive!

Message from ORS Director Phil Stoddard

I’d like to welcome you to the first of our new ProActive e-newsletters. Its purpose is to share short, bite-sized information to you—our busy employed members. It’s a chance to check in with your retirement system. We know for many Millennials and Gen Xers, retirement may not often be foremost in your thoughts. I’d like to encourage you to do a retirement estimate through the website on the left sidebar. This will help you evaluate where you are in your plan. If the results are not what you’d hoped, don’t get discouraged. What changes can you make to “right the ship?” It’s never too late, or too early, to save for retirement.
