Service Credit Calculation Change Effective July 1, 2019

Sept. 24, 2018

The State Teachers Retirement Board recently approved changes to STRS Ohio's service credit calculation in accordance with Administrative Code Rule 3307:1-2-01. The changes affect service credit calculations for part-time employees only.

The new calculation for part-time employees will be in effect for service performed July 1, 2019, and after. The current service credit calculation should be used for service performed through June 30, 2019. You are receiving this notification now to help you prepare for next fiscal year, and to allow time to make necessary changes to software used in service credit calculation.

In order to assist you, STRS Ohio has produced a new version of the Service Credit Decision Tree (Effective July 1, 2019) reflecting the changes in specific calculations. The current Service Credit Decision Tree will remain available as well. The online Service Credit Calculator will be updated with the new calculation after July 1, 2019.
