As reported by the Columbus Dispatch, the State Teachers Retirement System of Ohio (STRS) "is one of the largest public pension funds in the United States, serving nearly 500,000 active, inactive and retired public educators in Ohio." Two Now, tow teachers who paid into the fund have filed a class action lawsuit against STRS. According the the Dispatch, in "2017, the STRS board effectively eliminated the cost-of-living adjustment for its beneficiaries indefinitely, lowering the increase rate from two percent to zero. This means that pension payments for thousands of retired public educators in Ohio have been locked at the same level with no increase for nearly two years." The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio alleges "that the board violated Ohio law in lowering the rate. [The plaintiffs] are suing for themselves and on behalf of a class of more than 145,000 other public educators who would have received the cost-of-living adjustment."
