IMPORTANT HPOPS COVID-19 UPDATE
3/12/20 2:42 PM
From the Board of Trustees of the Houston Police Officers’ Pension System (HPOPS)
As we continue to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we want to assure you that the health and well-being of our members, office staff, and guests remains a top priority. 
As previously mentioned, HPOPS has systems in place to protect benefit payments and member services. In furtherance of that mission, we are implementing certain “social-distancing” measures by limiting travel and conducting many of our meetings in a virtual format. 
While we remain open for business, we encourage our members to consider looking to our website, www.hpops.org, e-mail, or even a fax machine for routine pension business. We realize that there are times when there is no substitute for a face-to-face meeting. But in the interests of your health, and the health of the HPOPS membership, we are asking that you consider taking advantage of other convenient “virtual” options for conducting your pension business in the near future. You might even find that these virtual options are pretty convenient!


 
Open Enrollment for Retirees
MARCH 16 to FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2020
2/21/20 11:09 PM
H.R. is closed to walk-ins  

In an effort to mitigate exposure of the Coronavirus to our dedicated employee and retiree populations, the Benefits Division has elected to stop accepting walk-ins or appointment scheduling beginning on Monday, March 16th. This was a difficult decision to make as we understand that many prefer to visit in person, but we felt it was important to remind people that visiting our offices in downtown Houston could unnecessarily expose them to the virus.
 
In response to this, we have added additional resources to assist with answering phone calls, returning voicemails and responding to emails. [More]
