Optional Retirement Program

The Optional Retirement Program ("ORP") is an alternative to the Massachusetts State Employees Retirement System for eligible employees at the Commonwealth's public institutions of higher education and the Department of Higher Education. ORP participants are not subject to tax on compensation under the Old Age, Survivors and Disability Income portion of the Federal Insurance Contributions Act. ORP is a defined contribution benefit plan. The Massachusetts Department of Higher Education is the ORP Plan Administrator.
