HPRS Trustees

Retirement Board

The Retirement Board, the governing body of the System, is responsible for the administration and management of HPRS. The eleven-member Board meets six times a year to review and formulate policies concerning members, contributors, benefit recipients, and staff. The members of the Board serve without compensation, and are reimbursed for actual and necessary expenses incurred while serving the System.

Seven of the eleven members are elected -- five by the active members and two by the retirees. The Superintendent of the Ohio State Highway Patrol serves as an ex-officio member, and three members are appointed.
