City of San Diego Retirement Benefits
City of San Diego retirees receive a monthly retirement benefit based on age at retirement, total years of service credit and final compensation.
Your retirement benefit from SDCERS is a lifetime benefit. Additionally, you may choose to leave a monthly continuance to a spouse, registered domestic partner (RDP) or beneficiary to be paid upon your death. That continuance is paid to your beneficiary for life.
In addition to a monthly retirement benefit, some retirees are eligible for supplemental benefits, as well as health insurance benefits. Visit the various pages listed at left to learn more about the supplemental benefits and eligibility requirements for retiree health insurance.
