About OkMRF

Our History

Watch our 50 year history video

OkMRF was established in 1966 by the City of Shawnee and the City of Ada signing a Trust Agreement which established the OkMRF System and Trust. Twenty-six members joined that first year. (Each new member today still joins OkMRF by entering into the same Agreement with Shawnee and Ada.) OkMRF is authorized under State statutes to pool funds for investment purposes.

Currently, OkMRF has assets exceeding $1 billion. The System began with a Defined Benefit Program only, and now offers Defined Contribution, Customized Manager Option and Retiree Medical Programs.



  • OkMRF is owned and operated by its members. Our plans and services have been developed by our members through their representatives – the OkMRF Board of Trustees. This nine member board, elected by the members of each district, listens. The Trustees respond to the requests of the employers and employees. This is evident in the continual expansion of services and plan features.
  • OkMRF specializes in government plans by design. We are very familiar with the needs, objectives and plan requirements (or lack of) which may be unique to the government sector. The OkMRF staff and team of consultants provide a professional service which is not duplicated anywhere.
  • OkMRF members share plan costs. This enables many municipalities to provide plans which might not be affordable otherwise. A majority of the plan administrative costs, investment fees and consultant fees are shared pro rata of plan assets. As a result, plan costs are minimal.
  • OkMRF is a non-profit organization. We do not pay any sales commissions to employees or consultants. There is no hidden agenda or ulterior motive (except maybe for pride) other than providing the best system possible – and remaining the State’s premier municipal retirement program.
  • The coalition of municipalities provides the best possible avenue of services. All programs are administered and managed locally here in Oklahoma. The direct relationships between the Trustees and the district members provide a communication link which assures employers and employees the ability to be heard and to be part of the development of new programs and services.

Our Trustees

Our Members’ and Plan Participants’ best interests are the highest priority for the OkMRF Trustees.

The Trustees are responsible for the overall implementation and success of the retirement programs, assisted by the OkMRF staff and a team of professional advisors. OkMRF assumes the fiduciary duties so your Council or Board doesn’t have to.

Some of the specific fiduciary duties are:

  • Amend the plan upon Member request or as needed to maintain its qualified status with the Internal Revenue Service
  • Adopt an investment policy, the governing document from which the retirement plan’s objectives and investment menu are developed and measured
  • Conduct investment manager searches, due diligence, selection, hiring and termination when necessary
  • Monitor the performance of managers compared with their peer groups and benchmarks
  • Monitor managers and consultants to ensure fees and expenses being charged are reasonable for services provided
  • Obtain training and education on new laws, regulations, industry trends and best practices
  • Comply with the Oklahoma Open Meetings and Records Act
  • Secure fiduciary liability coverage to protect the trust
