Your peers reveal the benefits of Ohio Deferred Compensation

Participation in Ohio Deferred Compensation can play an important role in helping you reach your retirement goals. Participation in the Program offers:

  • Educational tools and calculators
  • Convenient payroll deduction
  • Tax deferred savings
  • Portability when changing jobs within the public sector

But we know that sometimes you need to hear about the benefits of participation from someone other than Ohio DC itself. We recently reached out to a cross section of current participants to hear what they had to say about Ohio DC.

“A long-time co-worker told me that I should invest as much as I could afford into one of the Deferred Compensation program’s stock funds. I did as he suggested and it turned out to be the best financial decision I have made. My participation in the deferred compensation program literally changed my life.”

Brian Goodell


“I am hopeful of retiring earlier than I originally thought…I would really stress this to the younger workers to start early as it really will make a huge difference in your future.”

Andrew Santo LISW-S
Social work Supervisor
Licking County Justice Center

“I know nothing about finance/investing… I felt relief once I found out Pam Boyce would be my Ohio DC representative. I knew she would help set up my investment/portfolio for success…. My Ohio DC account will give me the freedom to choose when I WANT to retire — not when I can AFFORD to retire. Retirement is a big step/life-changing moment. I want to do it on my terms.”

Tim Nelson

“Working and being a member of Ohio DC is non-complicated and very easy. From the initial sign up either by paper or online to adding additional money to your account with the SMarT Plan. The representatives are available to assist you with questions that you may have and any information is available 24/7 online.”
