Social Security and the ORP

ORP Participants who are entitled to Social Security retirement benefits will find that the Social Security Administration (SSA) applies "offsets" to their benefits for pensions from public employers who do not participate in the SSA, like the Commonwealth. SSA's rules governing this issue are equally applicable to the ORP as they are to SERS.
