The state’s retirement system operates two different benefit plans.

Pathfinder Plan

  • The Pathfinder plan is a retirement savings plan that consists of two parts that work together to help you make the most of your retirement savings:

    401(a) Plan for mandatory contributions
    457(b) Plan for additional voluntary contributions

    Employees contribute 4.5 percent of their salary and OHCA contributes 6 percent. Employees may increase their contribution to 7 percent (the maximum OHCA will contribute).

Defined Contribution Plan (i.e., SoonerSave)

  • Optional, pre-tax investment account, similar to a 401k. Contributions are matched in part by the state
