All Montgomery County employees contribute to and participate in OPERS. Montgomery County employees do not contribute to Social Security; however, all employees do contribute to Medicare via a payroll tax rate of 1.45%. Montgomery County matches this 1.45% for Medicare. An OPERS pension benefit could reduce future Social Security benefits to which you may become entitled.

Retirement contribution rates are shared by employees and Montgomery County and are currently:

Employer = 14%
