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 MSERS.
You must report your ORP participation on the SSA application for retirement income. The offsets are determined when you apply for SSA retirement income.
You must submit an ORP Statement that the ORP plan administrator will provide for you.
