Board of Retirement Trustee Election Update

Interested Retired members may contact the Registrar of Voters (ROV) at 209-468-8945 or by email at email@example.com to obtain their candidacy forms. As of May 7, 2021 (the original filing deadline), three candidates were running for the Eighth Seat and no candidates were running for the Alternate seat.

Alameda Decision (Updated 3/15/2021)
The California Supreme Court Alameda decision requires SJCERA to exclude from retirement benefit calculations stand-by pay, correctional briefing pay and employer contributions to deferred compensation. As of March 1, all retired members' monthly benefits have been adjusted to exclude employer-paid deferred compensation contributions and standby pay. Benefit adjustments related to the exclusion of correctional briefing pay are expected to be completed as of the April or May retirement benefit payment. Staff is working with affected members to establish reasonable repayment plans where appropriate.
As soon as SJCERA has completed its work on retired members' accounts, staff will then begin calculating Active and Deferred members' overpaid contributions on the three excluded pay types. Currently, staff estimates repayment of overpaid contributions to Active and Deferred members could begin by late summer 2021.
