Solicitation Emails Regarding Retirement Counseling 

It has come to our attention that some university employees have received solicitation emails from various companies offering their services for retirement counseling.

If you received a communication from companies such as “My403bonline”, “PERAhelps” or “Fed Resource” offering assistance with retirement plans, please be advised that these companies have no relationship with The University of Oregon, Oregon Public Universities Retirement Plans (OPURP), PERS, or any of the fund sponsors (Fidelity, TIAA, AIG or OSGP).

Neither the UO nor OPURP endorse or recommend these services; therefore, if you receive emails offering assistance with your retirement plan that seem questionable, please contact the UO Benefits Office or OPURP.

University of Oregon (UO) employees have several retirement plan options. Two voluntary retirement savings plans and two pension plans offer a broad range of choices to work toward a comfortable retirement.


The Benefits Office recognizes that there is significant concern regarding potential changes to PERS and maintains a PERS Updates webpage to keep employees apprised of action taken by the Oregon on legislature and the PERS Board.
