Alameda Decision (Updated February 19, 2021)
Retiree Benefit Adjustments: Of the 127 retirees receiving benefits that need to be adjusted as a result of the Alameda decision, SJCERA has completed approximately 30 percent of the benefit adjustments. As part of the process, staff verify that the new benefit is calculated on the highest final average compensation (FAC) period after the ineligible pay types have been removed. If you are one of the 127 affected retirees, SJCERA has already sent you notification that you are affected. SJCERA will mail you another letter with your new benefit amount before you receive the first revised payment.

Alameda Decision Ad Hoc Committee: Having completed its review of the earnings codes, the Board of Retirement's Alameda Decision Ad Hoc Committee was disbanded at the February 12, 2021 Board of Retirement meeting.
