For Sacramento County Employees
If you are beginning to plan for retirement, no matter how far away it is, two of the critical factors will be health benefits costs and the potential to supplement your income in addition to your pension and Social Security in retirement.
The Employee Benefits Office has created a dedicated section on its website containing valuable information on health care options, deferred compensation, and other retirement considerations. Click here to link to the EBO website.
Paid Time Off to Attend
The County of Sacramento Personnel Policies & Procedures authorizes paid time off to attend retirement planning seminars sponsored by SCERS if the employee meets certain eligibility conditions. Specifically, Section L-6, provides:
2.1 Release time may be authorized only for employees who, as of the date of the seminar, already meet the minimum eligibility requirements for a service retirement from the Sacramento County Employees’ Retirement System. For employees who are members of the miscellaneous retirement system, the minimum requirements usually are ten years of service and age 50. For safety members, the minimum is ten years of service and age 50, or 20 years of service at any age.
