Presentations and FAQs
For Sacramento County Employees
If you are beginning any retirement planning, 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.

For employees who are members of the miscellaneous retirement system, the minimum requirements usually are ten years of service and age 50.
