Your monthly news & updates
As the year comes to a close it's a good time to do some housekeeping, making sure you know about investment option changes, pay dates and upcoming deferral increases.
Be Prepared for Deferral Increases
Ohio DC encourages our participants to take part in the SMarT Plan, an annual automatic deferral increase and most employees choose January as the best time for these increases. This can sometimes catch unsuspecting employers off guard, so don't be surprised if you receive an unusually large Change Report in January from us. Ohio DC and your employees thank you for making these changes in a timely manner.
Ohio DC Receives CAFR Award
For the 27th straight year, Ohio DC has received the Government Finance Officers Association's (GFOA) Certificate of Achievement for our Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR). This indicates that the CAFR meets the high standards of GFOA, demonstrating a constructive spirit of full disclosure to clearly communicate our financial story.

Your Correct Pay Dates Are Essential
You have the option to send your employee deferral information in via mail or the Ohio Business Gateway, but it's essential that we have your correct pay dates around year-end. We need to match your pay records for tracking annual deferral totals, so be sure to let us know if we have any of your payroll dates incorrect.
