4. STOP SERS Recommendation to ORSC for Retirement Changes effective Aug. 1, 2015

The Board will recommend to the ORSC at its September 9, 2009, meeting the following changes, effective for members retiring on or after August 1, 2015:

- to retire with no actuarial reduction to one’s retirement allowance, a member must be age 67 with 10 years of service or age 57 with 30 years of service;

- a member may retire early at age 62 with 10 years of service or age 60 with 25 years of service;

- f a member retires early, base early retirement reductions on actuarial reductions from the lesser of age 67 or possible attainment of 30 years of service.

To minimize the possibility of making unnecessary benefit changes and increasing member and employer contributions, SERS’ Board opted to periodically examine its 30-year funding responsibility and recommend benefit or contribution changes as needed. Should the recommended retirement eligibility changes for members retiring on or after August 1, 2015 fail to keep SERS within the 30-year funding window, the Board will consider other changes such as reducing cost of living adjustments and contribution increases for members and employers. The Board also understood that it could look at the costs of the Health Care program, if needed. This tiered approach addressed concerns from SERS’ advocacy groups that overreacting to the present funding situation could adversely affect members and retirees for many years.

Even before the current financial crisis began, SERS’ Board took action to keep the pension fund stable. SERS was the only Ohio public pension system to address pension design changes necessary to offset increased life expectancy when it introduced S.B. 148 in 2007 and advocated for its passage.

5. Retire Babe Ruth's Number Throughout Major League Baseball

George Herman Ruth came along at just the right time to save MLB from the "Black Sox Scandal" of 1919. Because of Babe Ruth the distasteful residue of gambling never fully impacted baseball.

Babe's home runs not only revolutionized the way the game was played but they also drew attention away from a devastating grand jury inquiryinto the 1919 World Series. Babe Ruth put people in ballparks all over the country.

When stricken with a genetic cancer, Babe Ruth was a courageous recipient of the first chemotherapy treatment. Babe Ruth was a great American.

He lived his life as freely as anyone and pushed the limits of his talent beyond anything seen in baseball before or since.

6. Retire Favre

Mr. Favre, since 1992 you have been a tremendous asset to the Packers organization. Your skill and passion for not only the game, but also for the team, the great state of Wisconsin, and the adoring Green Bay Packer Fan Base has been amazing and apparent.

You have set yourself apart in football history as a legend not only to the game, but also to the Packers Organization.

However, on the cusp of a playoff season and a division championship, it is the belief of we, the undersigned, that the 2007 season should cap an amazing 16 years of Packers excellence.

We believe that it is time for the Packers organization to focus on the next generation of Packers excellence.
