Pension Protection


We're the organization guarding your retirement income from legislative changes that could reduce your pension. We've been fighting for years, and this is no time to stop. Pensions could be questioned here and all over the country at any time.

Together, we can defend pensions. PFRO works tirelessly in the Ohio legislature to protect your future pension benefits. An experienced lobbyist, paid by PFRO, provides legislative representation, proposes legislation, obtains sponsors and testifies on behalf of PFRO members at legislative committee meetings.

Access To Benefits


When you retire, you often lose benefits such as dental, vision, and other insurance. Your state benefits, and even Medicare, might not cover you in these areas. In fact, there's no out-of-pocket maximum.

The good news? Your membership gives you access to a wide range of quality insurance plans. As a member, you'll enjoy access to policies designed to protect your medical and financial well-being--everything from life insurance to Medicare supplement plans. And, thanks to our strength in numbers, you can enroll in the coverage you need at discounted group rates.


Social Opportunities


Looking forward to meeting others and socializing again? Join PFRO now and be ready for future opportunities like nights out with friends old and new, group travel, volunteering, and more. And that's just the beginning. You'll be invited to meetings and other events that will keep you connected to like-minded people.

Research shows that social connection is critical to our mental, physical and emotional health. That's reason alone to join. Become a member today and be among friends.
